    You must have the 1.1D, then. The person asking the question did not specify, so I assumed it was the 1.1C, which has rim brakes. The 1.0LE has discs.

    Not going to take the time to compare all the specs for you, but on first glance, the LE has disc brakes, whereas the 1.1 has rim brakes. Big difference there. Also, the 1.1 has a standard BSA...

    Thanks for the info re: wear patterns.

    No, the droppage (both to the inside of the 34 as well as outside of the 50) happens not during shifting, but only under high power load.

    Thanks, guys. I've double checked the limit screws, and actually started there when this first started happening.

    It's just strange to me, as when comparing how my chainring looks, it doesn't look...

    I've already tried indexing adjustments via cable tension. Still it's fine when in the saddle, but as soon as I pedal out of the saddle with a lot of torque it suddenly shifts in the rear. Enough to...
