It's geared alright for my neck-of-the-woods and light~ish.
700c tyres on the way with supporting tubes, just need a suitable (adjustable) stem and some drop bars along with either hood levers or Cyclo Cross style bar-end leavers.

So the shopping list is:
Road drop bars, (with or without hoods, levers),
Adjustable stem,
Gear levers with combined brake levers or old school bar-end gear levers.

If you have any of the following then drop me a PM and I'll throw some cash your way.

Cr@ppy bit of (c)Photoshopping but you get the idea, with the 700c fitted should be ok.

Got a set of Sora 8x3 STIs - can do decent pics later, but they are the ones that were on the Kila

and Cinder

Couple of other things:
1. Whilst 700c wheels and tyres may physically fit the frame, will the brakes reach the rim?
2. If using V brakes, you'll need some adaptor things (I've also got a pair of these).
3. Road STIs front gear cable pull is different to MTB cable pull, I had to fit road front mech, I've also got an RSX front mech with 28.6 mount kicking about.
