A Golden Saddle Waterford Road

Chance are, you’ve got an older steel frame with either indexed or friction downtube shifters, an 8 speed cassette and some worked-over wheels. While a custom steel frame isn’t in everyone’s budget, chances are, a quick kick swap over is. Even SRAM Rival or Force can change a bike from a real pain to a real rocket to ride.

When a recent customer at Golden Saddle Cyclery brought in his old Waterford, the guys convinced him to go modern with it. And here’s the result. This beaut is ready for the HWY 2! Check out more below.

    TRP or Shimano long reach calipers?

    Calipers look like Force or Apex brakes. I thought long reach calipers (47-57mm) were required (unless custom) with Wound Up forks.
