    Well, I have a Force FD and Rival RD on one bike and it shifts really well. I have an Apex FD on another bike, and it works fine, though not as smooth as the Force FD/crank.

    If tubes with removable valve cores were always more expensive than those with non-removable cores, then I'd be right there with you. But occasionally I find them on sale for less, so I buy 'em. ...

    I like removable cores too (sorry Robert), because when I do break off a value, I can overcome the damage caused by me being ham-fisted for a buck rather than tossing the tube. And I have never...

    My Lezyne pump screws on and I love it -- much harder to break off the top of a valve.

    OP. make sure the valve core is screwed in tightly (perhaps a drop of loctite if it won't behave, although I...

    Agreed. Gatorskins ride like hell, but they do resist punctures. Anyway, you can run 25s no problem and even 28s, which I use on my commuter with narrow rims.

    +1

    Those and a 4 1/2" long, 5/8" diameter bolt with matching nut are what I used.

    I imagine the usual would work... you know, tighten the bolt until you break it, then back off a little.

    Is that a principled stance or have you actually tried the SRAM 22? :-)

    I'd go with the 11 speed 105 as it might be somewhat more future-proof. As others have noted, though, both are dandy.
