    The integrated brake design on the BMC is very similar to V-brakes. The distance of the arms to the rim can be adjusted using the set screw on the sides of the arms (the blue-colored screw on photo...

    My concern would be clearance (or lack thereof) of the pads to the rim. The spacers and cups on the attachment bolt are probably too long to fit the wheel in. Opening the calipers too wide to allow...

    Deore is an MTB group.

    Though I've used MTB RDs on road setups with some success, I haven't really gotten them to work flawlessly on all cogs to my liking.

    Shimano's road RD actuation ratio hasn't changed from 6s all the way to 10s, meaning they are interchangable. Maximum RD travel from 7s to 10s was the same since the cassette/freehub width did not...

    Yeah, have had that happen to me as well. For the life of me, I couldn't figure why it shouldn't work when it doesn't, when it works fine most of the time.

    The RD-6800 has a different cable pull ratio than RD-6700. That said, 11s and 10s components have different cable pull ratios and are generally incompatible.

    The (higher) pressure inside the tire is pushing against the valve and thus keeping you from pumping air in.

    Some rim/pad combos need to be broken-in with a few miles of braking before the noise subsides.

    I've had similar experiences with milled braking surfaces and hard brake pad compounds.

    Mavic freehubs have been 11-speed compatible for a long time. As previously noted, just remove all the spacers when using an 11s cassette.

    I will not argue with you on this one, and I do agree that modern (new) derailleurs have stronger return springs.

    However, I have had an older bike with an old RD (probably worn) way back then...

    Yes they are. The stickers on the originals (SLE, SLS) do not cover the entire depth of the rim. And the spoke count of 16F/20R don't match either.

    Aside from the obvious purpose of the RD to shift cogs laterally, it also applies tension on the chain vertically (via the cage return spring) so it wraps around the cogs for proper teeth engagement....

    Incorrect. 6800 has a redesigned FD with a longer arm to make front shifting easier (less lever throw).

    Tip: When working with the RD, do not turn the bike upside down. The RD won't work properly (gravity is going against it).
