|drivetrain upgrade question -||the greek|

|I'm riding a steal frame vintage Paramount ('91) with 7 rings in the back. If I move up to 9 speed stuff can I bend the frame or will it cause too much stress on the rear triangle?
I know I should buy a new bike but it's just a training ride.

|you can spread steel frame. Shedon Brown has an article on how http://www.sheldonbrown.com/frame-spacing.html
I've re-spaced several frames and it isn't hard but pers I wouldn't do it to classic bike. People spending time restoring those.
