This is for the mechanics out there. I have recently purchased a 90s vintage steel bike in pristine, excellent condition. I knew going in that i’d have to do some adaptations, namely headset and BB. I’m swapping mechanical parts from an older caad10, and I have everything minus 2 things: headset and bottom bracket. My current cranks are Rival 11spd BB30, so my questions are:
- Is there a threaded to threadless adapter headset that will fit in the headset? The headtube is 1 inch
- can i get a generic (say, enduro PF30) BB that’ll fit on that frame? Currently it’s an Italian-threaded bb frame
I’d kindly appreciate to-the-point answers, no need to preach or say i got an old bike. I wanted this bike badly, fully knowing I’d have to make some adjustmentts.
