I have an old Colnago I want to resurrect, which after some Google-ing I have discovered is very similar to the bike here (but in blue):
I want to replace the drop bar brakes with "standard" brakes on the handle bar (this bike isn't for racing, just going around the city and it's more comfortable like this). So I am thinking of taking off the old brakes, re-taping the bars and fixing some new levers to the bar.
The brakes are like these:
Problem is, I have never done this before and it's a first time. So my question is: do I need anything special to convert it? Or can I just use some standard v-brake levers?
After this the next question is I want to replace the whole crankset, cassette, pedals - the works. Brakes first though.
Edit: By "standard" I mean what this bike has, but with both sets of brakes.
