    I can't believe I was post 7 in this thread that started almost a dozen years ago...

    Anyways, my bike just got an upgrade to Di2 and picked it up from the shop earlier this evening... so I felt I...

    People are going to need to run pretty narrow q-factour crank/bb combos to make riding with those things bearable.

    Many of my group rides include some amount of gravel sections. I'm riding them on my CF bike with 23mm Conti GP4000 tyres on 1st generation Mavic Ksyriums and they've been holding up fine. Most...

    You can never have enough stands. I also have two. The one I built while solid and great in the garage isn't very portable so a few years ago, I bought something I could pack up easily. But I'm...

    I'm using a Garmin Edge 1000. It's a bit pricey and somewhat large but it ticks all the other boxes you're listing.

    To be honest, I just eyeballed it with 45 deg v-cuts to nominally fit a 27.2mm seatpost since that was my clamping target. Just make sure not to go too big otherwise you won't be able to apply any...

    The 2003 K2 enemy was a good bike for its time. It may still be a good deal depending one what condition it's in and what the asking price is. It had a good mix of upper entry-level to mid-range...

    This reminds me of a story my wife was telling me about something she heard at a lecture about tradition. As the story goes, the storyteller, a woman cooking Thanksgiving dinner was given to always...

    Aproaches to cycling vary from person to person. Right now, you have a desire to ride a bike. I'm assuming your fiancee also does as well. If not then you probably don't want to push her into...

    I know it's probably too much to hope for but I wish Shimano (or someone) would come out with a bridge head that fits the old Shimano FlightDeck mount and emulates a D-Fly so that those with older...

    Chocolate foot is/was a traditional mountain bike term. It refers to the foot you have a preference for in the forward position... either when starting off or when coasting at "level" (to clear...

    Buying cycling shoes is like buying any other pair of shoes... you need to ensure that they fit and feel comfortable on a ride. Go to a bike shop or sporting goods store that sells cycling shoes and...

    That's true and for that I do have cadence and HR. I don't have the willingness to part with the money necessary for PM yet though. However, one thing to note is that the unit may go to sleep if...

    I had an issue with mounting the speed sensor on my old Ksyriums. The rear hub shell is too narrow. Mounts up fine on the front hub but of course I don't get "speed" when the bike is on a trainer....

    I just installed the update. One unexpected result was that it removed all my settings, profiles and sensor registrations.

    Note that riding with narrower bars will not allow you to open up as much for breathing as before. As far as handling goes, you'll likely find that it will be twitchier and at first you might be...

    I haven't tried the GP4000s yet. I'm still on my stock of GP3000s I bought "in bulk" due to a really nice deal from a firesale a while back. When new they're pretty hard to get onto my Ksyriums but...

    Hmm... so you're saying the FD-6603 cage length was designed with a 13T minimum drop from the big ring. I suppose if a cage made to really closely match a 39 had too much length, it wouldn't clear a...

    I think you should just keep it simple and photograph everyone in front of a white garage door. :D

    Ah... you're talking about front difference. Yes, that might be an issue but at least on paper it should be okay. According to the spec-sheet, the FD-6603 has a 13T limit. Assuming the OP's cranks...

    Unfortunately, you cannot replace the clamp on the FD-5503. Newer Shimano FDs use a multi-clamp design though and will fit 28.6 as well as 31.8 diameters. A new FD-6603 is around $50 and will work...

    The outer to middle difference is not important with regards to a FD's capacity. The difference between the outer to inner is what matters. And in this case (52/42/30 vs 52/39/30), that difference...
