    Someone can check me on this but I calculated the speed difference on a 700c bike between a 52/11 gear and 50/11 gear at a cadence of 90 is about 2 kph or 1.25 mph.

    Yep. Its rare but sometimes we use the 24 ring to get gears smaller than 1-1. It rare enough that an aluminum 24 ring has lasted 10,000+ miles and is just starting to show wear. Most of the time...

    Makes my stokers current broken collarbone look routine. Racing anything is more exciting and dangerous than just riding it.
    Breaks that close to the joint make me shiver.

    Ahh there is the rub. 130BCD cranks limit you to a 39 or maybe a 38 middle ring. To use the 36 ring which nicely bridges smaller granny rings and a 50 or 48 big ring you cannot use a 130BCD. You...

    I think the best chance of the front shifting to work is to go with something like Carbonfiberboy's suggestion.

    How did it test ride?
    Is that bike using road shifters or mountain?
    If the low is lower than you need would a road Shimano 11 speed cassette be low enough?

    In my mind the Di2 decision boils down to three factors. All depend on personal choice:

    First is cost. Since you are talking about a Calfee I assume cost is not a barrier.

    Second, do YOU...

    The safest thing is to check the bike. That is the time frame when the more expensive models did have the much larger fork however I am not sure it had made it to the Visa model in 1995.

    My wife wife admits to being a control freak, but her highly competitive side won over her control freak side when she saw what is was like on the tandem. Now her single gathers dust.

    I assume you meant to write 100 psi max pressure with a 28mm wide tire and 50 psi with a 1.9in (48mm) tire.

    Good info and illustrates wider tires pressure on rim walls.

    The last I checked, they do make them for Santana's 73mm BB shell. This shell width is an old mountain bike standard.

    Nice!
