I agree that men should not shave their legs. There, did I do this correctly?

The main issue here is that your wife requires me to shave my legs for the you know.

I'm in. Ditto on the leg shaving. Feel the same way about the frame materials and the component manufacturers debates. Who's kidding who? Lots of delusionals on the road forum.

I do somewhat agree with you....................10 speeds are good enough, electronic had to evolve, we are not a group to rest on laurels or take complacency to the norm.
And, I only care about what I care about.................not what someone tells me to.

Hope this helps

But then it leaves a funny line when I shave higher up.

??? The cassettes are darn near the same width. The difference between 9-10 is less than 1mm and less than the jump from 8-9.

Hmm. This got moved to foo? While there was off topic posting if you use that for the litmus test there wouldn't be a single thread left in the 41.

This thread isn't serious enough to be in the 41. It was moved so the standard of thread quality in the 41 wouldn't be adversely effected.

Talk about a low bar.

And yet, this thread indeed managed not to meet it.
