So, I was thoroughly enjoying this morning's commute when my mind began to wander, as it does, and ponder the possibilities of modernising - i.e. fitting brifters, new wheels and a more modern groupset - to my Super. It's such an ace frame that I want to ride it more - I love the ride quality and ridiculously agile handling of the 80's steel and its general grin-inducing quality. I don't feel obliged to keep it 'Eroica-ready' as it's not likely to get ridden at any strictly vintage events, so don't really have any qualms about modernising this one a bit. It probably also feels more nimble as it's a size too small, really, but I love the geometry as-is and could ride it all day. I'm contemplating something like a Chorus or Veloce groupset in silver, some slightly squatter bars and maybe some deeper section Campagnolo wheels but have the following to overcome: Bottom bracket standards - it's square-taper at the moment. How up-to-date can I achieve? Dropout spacing - I'd want to go 10-speed minimum, so it's cold-setting time. Is that a compromise that would result in permanently slightly-off shifting? Is it possible to re-set it back down? Apathy / getting distracted / cost. I'm thinking aloud while waiting for a client to turn up at work really - what are your thoughts / experiences folks? How hard would it be to fit a modern groupset and wheels to a 1981 frame?
