    Granted, anything can happen, but if you are secure in your home, your bike should be too. If you are not, you have bigger problems than protecting a bike. The overall security of your house should...

    Why would you need a chain inside your house? If someone can break into your house, they can certainly cut your chain.

    Very good. You are now an official member of the 41 (Road Bike Forum).

    Asploding is the single mode by which crabon frames...

    I don't know what your bike will cost, but you won't protect a new CF bike at any price point with a "chain". Actually not with anything. Such a bike is not for leaving locked up outside for even 10...

    Like wired Ethernet vs. wireless for home internet service, eh? Like wired bike computers vs. wireless? Like telephones? The wires win every time? Nah, I don't think so.

    DI2 is brilliant in many respects. The cockamamie internal wiring and battery mounting are not among those. The first company that does away with all that nonsense while maintaining the shifting...

    Yes, your diagram perfectly illustrates the figure that I provided. Several decimal places suggest the precision, and my word speaks to the accuracy. Not only will my prediction be borne out, but...

    By all means enjoy your wired system. I shall not. What is wrong with wires is two-fold. First they are unnecessary and inelegant. Secondly they will not be part of the final form of this...

    The value of the highly accurate number I provided is that one knows precisely when the asplosion will occur. You can invite your friends for a viewing party. They have to bring the beer, of course.

    How so? The only use for any wires that I can see would be to connect both derailleurs to a single battery and that would be a waste of time and effort IMO. There is no reason why control wires...
