Also, I see chains listed as being for a ten speed - is that what I'd need? Do you folks have a good chain you'd recommend?
KMC 5-6-7 speed chains are cheap and strong. I'm largely indifferent to cables; there are a lot of good ones out there with teflon lining. I would invest in brake shoes, kool stop continentals will work great on your center pull brakes and look sharp.
