Cross 'Conversion'??(1 post)

Cross 'Conversion'??JBergland
Aug 12, 2002 6:10 AM
I'm considering converting a Nishiki road frame that I have into a cross bike. I'll need brake bosses, cable routing guides and maybe a different fork. The frame DOES have enough clearance for knobbies and I have enough spare parts that I shouldn’t need to purchase much before it's rolling. My question is, is a 'conversion' worth it?? The Nishiki frame/fork is from a touring type model. It's lugged and should paint up nicely, but I don't know?? I'll end up spending around $150 before all is said and done. What do you think? Suggestions?? Feedback??
