    High end 15 speed would have been (no later than) late 1980's, more likely 70's and before. I just sold a 5 speed dura ace freewheel, actually. High end 16 speed was, what early 90's?

    I've found that when I think I'm bonking, as in no energy and blabbering nonsense to myself, I need salt. The way I discovered this was by eating the last of my food the other day about 50 miles out,...

    If you can get a straighter chainline by using the small ring, maybe you should try it out every now and then. Are you running 42/52 rings? If so, you should get plenty of gear range overlap between...

    I agree. A compact will be cheaper than a triple. You will need a compact crank and a bottom bracket.

    With a triple, you need:
    -triple crank
    -bottom bracket
    -maybe new front shifter(some 5500's...
