    Kits are identical except for brand, I would go with nashbar, as they are very amenable to returns. As to whether the kit is enough, sort of depends
    on which generation Shimano you mean: sq taper?...

    Looks like Niagra also has the 100 patch box of Rema patches: 16mm and 25mm, for competitive prices. If I were younger I might consider a bulk box of tubes
    but a bit of info on their provenance...

    Ditto: zip tie about top tube or head tube depending on angle when turning bar to L. Better to shorten the housing a bit to reduce the flare out of
    the housing before it enters the top tube, but...

    Security Bolts is sure proud of their screws: $5 for one screw? McMaster's price is about 1/10 that. Mcmaster also has several options and the

    Agree, no longer on Loosescrews or Aebike either. Amazon search for Rema patches 16mm or 25 mm brings up boxes of 100 of each for under $20. Not cheap but
    as noted they last a long time, for most...

    The important thing is to securely tape a string to the cable end when you pull the cable out of the frame. Since the cable will be crimped to
    some degree by the derailler clamp it might be best...

    If the RD hanger is integral to the frame it will have 26TPI threading, easily fixed with a 10x1M tap run through it, which I did when I rebuilt
    my ~1970 PX10 frame in the late '70s. The fork will...

    It is unlikely there is any 'channel' inside the top tube, such a channel would increase friction on the cable unless perfectly routed inside

    Probikit has very good prices, but at present does not seem to offer 170mm 50x34 cranks. I got my 10spd Di2 group from them
