    Still unclear how many speeds on the cassette. I just got a Veloce 12–13–14–15–17–19–21–24–27–30 (10-speeds, count 'em) to replace a very worn 13-29 10-speed Centaur cassette. I'm not sure now, but I...

    I've been using my Road Morph with Gauge for at least a decade and it's still going strong. I did refurbish the plunger using a kit from Topeak many years ago.

    The S-A thumb shifter clicks: I suppose that makes it "indexed", though S-A predates so-called indexed shifting by a few decades.

    I own both a custom steel bike with S&S BTCs and a Bike Friday (Air Friday). Retrofitting an existing bike with BTCs may be costlier than you anticipate since the frame builder has to cut the frame,...

    Got a pair from Niagara Cycle in January. They were easy to put on. I took advantage of the change to swap my OEM Schrader inner tubes for Presta tubes, which I prefer. So far only 2 rides, on good...

    FWIW, while I lack experience with SRAM (other than Twist Grip), I use both Shimano and Campagnolo. I find Shimano gives me slightly more wrist strain on the right hand (rear shifts) as the motion to...
