    Hot^2.
    Guess you don't have much motivation to switch wheels between them, but it should work - right?

    I stopped accumulating jerseys last year because the two drawers I store them in are full.
    I'm too lazy to count how many there are, but the truth is I only wear about a dozen of them regularly.

    Well, that's an option too, although like me the OP already has 10 speed wheels, which is why I'm sticking with 10 speed.
    Also, there is no 11 speed group available at the same price as the Tiagra.

    You certainly seem to have a mix of parts on your bike. Not telling you what to do, but if you are thinking of spending $300 for a new shifter and related parts, why not just get a whole new...

    I don't think that will work very well. The spacing on the cassette won't match the throw of the shifter.
    I did something like that by mistake once (9 speed cassette on 8 speed bike) and it was...

    You can replace the freehub body using a 5mm wrench, a new freehub is about $50, some examples here.

    A few years ago, I did a 5 day loop starting and ending in Calgary.
    Day one - Hwy 22 to Sundre ( stayed at a friends place but motels are available)
    Day two - Hwys 22 and 11 to Nordegg (motel)

    If it is the right size for you, that OCR is a great bike. I sold mine for $400, so I'd say it's a good deal too.

    That's not too bad a load.
    I'm pretty sure the weak spot will be the wheels, you would be hard pressed to break that frame.

    I agree with CafeVelo though, carrying a lot of weight (especially on...

    In my experience (4 pairs of GPs, 8 pairs of GP4000s) the GP4000s have a longer tread life and a bit better puncture resistance.
    I've also experienced my share of sidewall cuts on the GP4000s.

    I think the people claiming that threaded stems don't flex any more than threadless probably don't ride in such a way that flex would be an issue.

    I think they made the full 853 frames from about 1998 to 2003. The top lines were the Maillot Jaune and Zurich. Then came the Buenos Aries, Tourmalet and Nevada City, in that order.

    I think you can avoid the QE2 if you go west of Devon and hook up to 778 and 771. A few extra miles but nice quiet back roads.

    I think the downside to this method would be that the wax doesn't stay melted long enough to penetrate the links, ie: the wax drops would just congeal on the outside of the chain.
    Cool idea...
