I've got full SRAM 2x10 X7 (type 2 w/ clutch) and am satisfied. I've never really noticed the 'clunk' many describe but I do think its smoother and less chain slap than the X5 it replaced.

Which handlebar tape to use... black or matching accents on the bike?

When you build a bike up, do you normally use a neutral color (black or white), try to match the frame's primary color or go for matching colored accents on the bike?

It doesn't have the RS500. Its got a 5800 105 crank. Its definitely the seat post. I pulled a seat post off of another bike and swapped it out... dead quiet.

navinsipe, are you talking about where the seat post connects to the seat? Do you have a photo? There are a few different styles of seat post that have been used on the Domane. This is mine.
