So I'm trying to get to grips with the intricacies of the vintage road bike...
If a frame has 120mm chain stay spacing, then it can fit an older rear cassette, but not a newer one!? :facepalm:
Which will fit, which will not!? Help!

Sheldon Brown's Bicycle Frame/Hub Spacing is a handy starting point.

Stick to a standard 5 speed freewheel (called a block), two chainrings up front and that's 10 gears............enough for anyone :)
