Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hi in short, its really not worth it. I had a Link C8 and was contemplating the same thing, after pricing out V brake extenders, new 451 wheels, most likely you will want to change the crank out for something bigger (my C8 was a 52T and the Verge was 55T) to be able to push through to the speed you now can go.

It works out cheaper to sell on and buy a used or new Tern Verge P9 or P10 and start from there.
