VO Internal 3 Speed Wheel

I think that this may be an option to continue on my Grand Prix bike that I started in early 2008 and has been shelved for 2009.

The weakest part of my conversion was the old Simplex derailleur and related gear. I thought about making it a single speed. Getting a new wheel set might be the ticket.

This new wheel would require moving from 27″ to 700c, but I think that my fenders and brakes would work. So I think that I would need a new chain, some new brake pads, new tires and tubes.

Might be a way cool bike for Spring 2010.
