    Only necessary on the front; a SP Dura-Ace brake is more than sufficient to lock up the rear, and better than a DP because the lower leverage is easier to modulate.

    Looking from the front of the shifter, the spring needs to rotate clockwise so it's pushing down on that pawl. I can't remember where the other end of the spring is supposed to be hooked, but I...

    You might be able to scrounge one from your LBS; you need an old GXP BB, and there's an aluminium shim in the NDS bearing. Should fit, fingers crossed

    Should be doable. You'd only replace it with a Shimano unit.

    AFAIK the RS10 isn't a very old wheelset, so maybe you should check if an 11s cassette will fit; you might be lucky.
