I scored a 1995 Fuji Roubaix road bike steel frame and fork and am going to try the singlespeed thing with it for now and most likely do a century in Ohio at the end of July. I need a decent set of wheels, handlebars, brakes, stem and the works. No rush on this and I’m open to suggestions since it’s my first SS.
I need some not so fancy 700c wheels and a cassette for 9spd 105, Preferably by this weekend (6/2). These are going on a Cannondale R600 that my girlfriend just got for $200 which seemed like a good deal for the components alone though the frame is rough. I have one Mavic CXP21 rear wheel I can probably get true with some work if someone has something similar for a front they can sell me. There’s currently a SRAM 11/28 7spd cassette on it that looks to be “okay” if anyone wants it.
Just in case someone has one in good condition, I need a 10speed 11-28T cassette (105 or?) and a chain. Otherwise I’ll have to get this new. Probably going to need a 34/50 105 crankset as well.
Going to go pick around at Kraynicks this weekend.
Thanks Dan, I think I have a cheapo (<$100) set of wheels lined up to pick up tomorrow from someone here. I think I saw your thread for those though, are they the heavier onese? I want to upgrade mine eventually but am not in the market for a nice set for myself yet.
I have a Campy Melbourne 56 front wheel with a Miche hub to part with and a fairly true Macic CXP 23 Ultegra 9 speed hub rear if your CXP 21 doesn’t work out. The Campy front is a bear to mount a tire on, at least with a wire bead. In a month or so I’ll have an early model Ultegra compact 175 mm crankset to pass along… left crank has a few stripped threads, but is entirely functional as long as you mount the pedal cautiously.
