Upgraded retired 8speed to 9speed winter bike

Upgraded retired 8speed to 9speed winter bike

Hi GCN Team, since i have a modern carbon bike, my old but pretty pinarello steel bike stood mostly unused in the basement. To bring it to a new live, i upgraded from 8speed downtube shifters to a 9speed drivetrain with STIs. Also invested in wider tires with better puncture protection and mudguards (or fenders if you're american). Now i can use it as a decent winter bike. Ride on!
