    Ontario to US border crossing

    Does anyone know if there's a place where you can bike into the US? I really have no idea if its possible. Somewhere from southern Ontario into NY ideally.

    I had three bikes done at Byers Bush in Mississauga

    You need to bring them the bare frame, but they do good work and it costs around $100

    Haha, dunno what just happened in this thread...

    But anyways the question was just about the chain. The components I have listed in the OP will work together (10s road shifter w/ 9s RD).

    My new bike will most likely end up with Ultegra 6700 Shifters, Crank (50-34), and FD. Rear will be an XT cassette 11-36 and XTR derailleur (M971 SGS). From what I've heard the M971 will work with...

    Actually, I can just put back the tekro short reach brakes on my current bike (where my 6700 is currently) and see how it works. That should provide the same results.

    Yeah, I was planning to use the Shimano 650 until I read some reports of poor performance with 6700. But it sounds like that can be resolved with some set-up trickery if it is even apparent at all....
  9. Long Reach (47-57mm) brakes for Ultegra 6700

    I am about to put in the order for a custom frame, which will be made for 47-57mm brakes. I want to put my Ultegra 6700 groupset on, but obviously I will have to switch the brakes out.

    The only...

    I asked about the tire clearance at the shop, he seemed to think it wouldn't work. But I will have it confirmed with Marinoni, since most people report the 47-57mm brakes leaving enough room for 28c...

    That is an excellent question, and I should have mentioned.

  15. Ordering a Marinoni Sportivo - detail decisions

    Apart from Ford's anti-bike position, he also just doesn't seem particularly competent.

    Did you have any problems with spokes breaking?

    I'm wondering if having the wheels rebuilt with the original spokes will be ok, or if we should get new spokes as well.
