    It's not Avid hate, it's just that you hear and see more issues with Avid brakes than Shimano. For Shimano, they aren't perfect, I previously used XT M775 and they had issues with seal swelling and...

    Season 1 was Ok, but they should have left it as the originally promoted single season show, gave up on the 1st/2nd episode of season 2. No wish to ever return to watching it.

    Shimano brakes are more user friendly as they use mineral oil vs DOT that Avid use.

    Got to agree with this, the bigger the bag, the more stuff you will carry, needed or not. From having a quick look at the bag from the link in the Op's 1st post, it looks nice, but it's soo big, and...

    Why look used? a budget fork of that age (2003) is going to offer poor performance vs a new for from today.

    For the sizing, as long as you get the steerer right, 1 1\8th" was just about the only...

    +1 on the dropper, if you bought it, you may as well use it.

    Why? you can't by high end 10 speed anymore (on new bikes, and when stock is sold out in stores that will be it), and 11 speed is cheaper new than 10 speed was.

    For the crank, you can use a 10...

    You may want to check that for your specific wheel, most hubs pre 2013 weren't 11 speed compatible, and unless you have a brand which supplies aftermarket freehubs, most aren't updateable.

    The HG700 is an MTB & Road chain, chains don't care about their end application, as long as it's for the correct speed, in this case Road 11 or MTB Dyna-sys11.
