Can I use a 10 speed Shamano Ultegra rear derailer on my 9 speed cluster and shifter (all Shamano Ultegra set)? Is it just a matter of adjusting the overall range to nine speed width?

I don't think any posting should be moved without the permission of the OP. The job of the moderator should only be keeping things civil.

I rode my 20 mile route today and set my best time so far. I am wondering if my improvements are a result of my training or the warmer weather. I feel stronger each week.

I rode 28 miles today. My route took me out to a lake (Lake Britton) in Nor Cal. It was 75 degrees F and the second day of wearing shorts. It was a great day for a ride.
