Was the Tourney broken or was it just not shifting properly? If it was the latter then it may mean it was just improperly adjusted.

I could adjust/tune the Tourney to shift pretty well (I have had...

No way to bypass this as this is how the shifters and derailluers are designed to work. No way they will work properly with each other.

No. Power is work done per unit time - it's work divided by time.

The faster he spins, the less time it takes to complete one cycle of the work (torque).

Yes.

The equation for power in rotational machines is

P (watts) = (torque X 2 x pi X RPM)/60

Power is proportional to RPM.

"Pounding" at lower revs (to produce the same power) means you...

The 2012 CAAD10 105 model came spec'd with Tektro R580 calipers on an otherwise full 105 (5700) bike. Checking the Tektro website shows that the R580 is no longer available, but the R540 seems like...

If the ferrules come with the cable set, then fine, use it. But personally, I wouldn't lose any sleep over not using them in the build.

The purpose of the "tongue" on the cable end is to seal the housing to prevent ingress of dirt. Jagwire cable sets have them as well. I usually put them on exposed areas (the derailleur end of the...

The cogs will not fit any other way due to the splines on the freehub body. I personally use the smallest splilne to align everything.

You said it yourself, and I think you already know the answer.

10 PSI is not a lot of air IMO, given that the rim wasn't even designed for tubeless.

As far as I know, aside from the sleeker finish and lighter weight - none. Braking is improved more with better pads than with a shinier finish - spend the extra cash there.
