Have to admit I haven't yet checked if 27" or 700c
(note to self - check these things before purchase)
It would now be the ideal time to get the studs moved, but the cost is getting too high to be worth while
wish list was:
Bottom bracket repair £30 for a reweld, £110 for a new shell or the cost of a threadless BB
new bridges £60 , move studs guess at least £20
decals , quote advised to allow about £40!
painting the embossed lettering on the seat stays £10
as you can see is adding up to way too much to be worthwhile
had a chat my brother last night, he's suggested rather than sending it off just yet just t cut it and wax it as best as possible, diy the decals and diy the respacing. spend the saved money on new wheels instead.
If they are 27" I believe I can get round this by using different brake arms as it has canti studs
once built up, if I really really
love it, then maybe go ahead with the repairs and respray option
