    rather than risking your investment in the wheels, pick up a tubular set. you can run tubular tires at low PSI with sealant inside. the rims are also a lot lighter.

    Yes, anterior pelvic tilt is extremely common, especially with 8 hours days in an office chair, and causes all sorts of problems, from back pain to uterine prolapse.

    I STRONGLY agree with OP. In my area some cyclists ride far right, usually on the lane line, almost exclusively. Cars pass them, sometimes pretty close, often causing oncoming cars to honk at the...

  9. shimano BBR60 reverse compatability with older cranks?

    I picked up new Shimano 5800 52/36 cranks and a BBR60 for them.

    My original plan was to get a 46t big ring also for cx, but when I saw the ring costs almost as much as the entire cranks, and...

  13. Bontrager aero data on clincher vs tubular

    I was looking at the Aeolus D3 wheels, at almost every AOA Bontrager claims the clincher has less drag than tubular:

    weird.

    He was really angry.

    I think he was an insurance agent.

    The DA9000 should work fine with 6800. But it's $$$
    What I would do is use your existing 11-28, and buy a 12-25. Use the cogs from the 12-25, but take out the 18t and the biggest 3 cogs, insert the...

    I got Giro Code MTB shoes with carbon bottom for my commuter bike, and they are as easily stiff as my Shimano road shoes with carbon bottom.
  18. using a chainring as a bash guard in a 1x setup?

    I am running a 1x11 with a 43t ring in the inner position. This is a regular ring and regular RD, not the new one designed for a 1x setup.

    I use two wheelsets, my road wheels are nicely dialed in...

    Shortish answer for the OP:

    get a 5800 11-32 cassette (I got one for $35 from a British site)
    get a 10 speed 12-25 or similar with a 16t cog
    take off 11t and 12t from the 5800.
    put on the lock...

    could you comment on the 16:8 hub option? is it more stiff than 12:12? is it any harder to build the wheel?
    I'm thinking of building a set of pacentis with 16:8

    thanks!

    get the shimano 12-30 cassette

    if your RD will run a 28 it should (99% confidence) run the 30, just turn in the B screw. If you cant find that, use youtube.
