What to consider when buying new wheels for an old bike?
I've got a mildly dilapidated Peugeot Premiere from 1986 and I'd like to get it running and on the road.
I've been trying to find out what the restrictions are between wheels and drivetrains. For example, I'm guessing I can't just buy a new pair of wheels and fit the old cassette to the new rear wheel? From what I can gather, the hub needs to match the groupset you're using...
The hubs on the Peugeot are Maillard and the drivetrain is all branded as Sachs Huret (I realise I've just contradicted myself there but you get where I'm coming from, hopefully..)
I've tried, in vain, to find the answer to this question online and inside 'Zinn and the art of road bike maintenance' but still haven't managed to shed any light on it. So I thought I'd try here.
Any help would be really appreciated and I apologize if this is a stupid question.
