    Your plan sounds solid, assuming the shifters and brake levers work with what you have, which it looks like it will.

    As far as chainline goes, I wouldn't worry about getting any additional...

    I rode the long route on Sunday. The ride itself was pretty dang epic. For me, one of the highlights was being handed a can of cold Coke at the top of Cypress Mountain. Sucking down that sugary...

    WTB 40c's, and they are pretty awesome as nocluejimbo said. If you have a bike that can fit them, I would highly recommend them. I used these for all the PDX Trophy Cup races at PIR, Kruger's...

    ah... I think I'd still go with the BURD. Personally, I didn't have any issues with my 1x10 set up. Race Face ring, 105 rear derailleur, loads less to think about when racing.

    Easy, go with the BURD. The Shadow+ (clutch version, MTB 10 speed) won't work with road shifters. The Shadow (no plus, no clutch, MTB 9 speed) will work with road shifters though.

    The pavement ended about 2-3 miles in from the 26, and from there I rode around 7 miles or so of gravel. I had originally intended to ride up to Trillium Lake (11 miles one way), but I wasn't...

    yeah, i really can't talk that much smack. i'm rocking out to some new wave in the office right now.

    but seriously, just get the kit. you'll look ridiculous, but that's half the fun of cycling.

    i've had the egg beater's and now the candy's. the egg beater's cleared mud better, but the candy's offer a better platform if you miss the clip in right away.

    i like the tread design. it looks slightly more aggressive than the nano, which i think would pair up well with the nano up front. it's also a good deal lighter, on paper at least.

    yeah, the nano's are a nice tire. i got mine last summer to use for a few early season dry cross races. i wanted a higher volume tire to soak up the bumpy stuff, and these definitely did the trick....
