    I tried and failed to put Brifters together with my MTB drivetrain on my folding 26" commuter. FD pull ratio is just plain different. Older rear mechs from '80's - ??? are the same, AFAIK and IME. ...

    A new (old) triple crankset designed for a shorter spindle can still give you a decent chain line. I think that's the way to go. Chain line is much more important on FG/SS bikes, right? A...

    Because cassettes can go down to 11 teeth, a smaller set of chain rings up front can cover most of the gearing ground needed by recreational/sport cyclists. Smaller = lighter and also winds up...
