It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment 700 wheels on bike made for 27" wheels
So you're going to replace the rims? I think the OP was talking about just throwing a set of pre-built 700c wheels onto his 27" frame.

Second choice? Since I'm the only candidate so far, does that mean that you'd rather have nobody at all? Ouch! :p

This question is starting to turn into a list of equally valid answers. Voting to close.

comment Shimano SLX Rear Derailleur with Microshift bar end Shifters
This is only part of the story. It's best to make sure that the number of gears matches. If the OP uses an 8 speed derailleur, shifting won't be optimal. I'm not entirely sure about a 10 speed, but I think I heard somewhere that they changed pull ratios with the switch to ten speed. If that's right, it wouldn't work at all.
