I will have to change my wheels on my old trusty late-80s Peugeot (PS28) soon. The rear wheel is mounted with a freewheel-type 6-speed hub (not cassette).
I was wondering if all ready-made wheels that you can buy are only cassette compatible (therefore 7-8-9 speeds)?
My derailleur is Shimano 105 with mixed friction/indexed mode, mounted on the tube, I suppose it is only designed to support an indexed 6 speed.
A LBS told me I could only change the rim of the wheel given the hub is in good condition.
What would you suggest would be the best way to approach this?
