    Anyway, everyone knows you weigh bikes "bare" and the result is...

    I cannot join, as the fleet now includes two brifter bikes and one Retroshift bike. However, I think the club is a pretty cool thing and I am happy that such dedicated retrogrouches exist.

    What is the ABC position on Retroshift? On Gripshift? How about Di2 with button controls (like on a time trial bike)?

    I get to work at 5 am and spend 10 hours straight staring at six computer screens, don't take lunch, eat at my desk, no water cooler - some mental health breaks are necessary. And I type fast . . .

    Well, the hood was easy too. So I am no longer intimidated by Ergopower levers.

    Well, that went smoothly, I think.

    I started out by removing the cables and then removing the lever from the bar clamp. Then I discovered that I couldn't remove the hood, with only a loose lever...

    Anyone have a guess on production volumes of the 992 vs the 979? I seldom see 992s for sale. Yet they were produced for several years - 1992 to 1999???

    Are the 2009 and later Ergopower levers easier or harder to work on?. I watched one of those videos by mistake, and the various bits seemed less accessible than on the 2008 and earlier levers.
