How many of you "brifters absolutely" folks have actually ridden 2300? I am curious why you so highly recommend it over DT.
After thought, the primary reason I stand by friction DT is that it is quiet, if you know how to ride it. Heck, that's the primary reason my single speed sees the majority of the miles I ride (not that I can't ride friction DT, but that it is always quiet). You can always make a DT bike quiet. Can you always do that with 2300?
