    If you have the Shimano Ultegra R603 cranks then you're going to have a big problem because there are no regular inner ring mounting posts. You can change the middle ring to a TA Specialites...

    Thanks to everyone for your input. The Flo rims look really good. Their 30mm deep rim has been designed with a real aero profile instead of a simple V, so should be significantly more aero than any...

    The HED Ardennes rim appears to be only 24mm deep and only available as part of a wheelset. Am I missing something, or does this not meet at least two of my criteria (>30mm, available as rim only).

    I agree, as long as you don't want to use the adaptor again then it looks like a hammer and an improvised tool will work in the place of the fancy FSA version.

    I found one more to add to the list:

    Halo Caliber, all metal, 38mm deep, 570 grams.

    Another that might be interesting is the rim that is on the Zipp 30 wheel (which is not carbon). It's only...

    I've had many versions of SKS fenders on multiple different bikes and been happy with them through many years of touring and daily commuting. I'd recommend them to anyone. Living in Europe means that...

    I'm not a fan of hydraulics, but I do like disc brakes. The Shimano CX77 cable-operated disc brake works great on road bikes, I find it slightly better than AVid BB7s in terms of feel and power, but...

    With a wide-range cassette and two well-chosen chainring sizes, this would probably be the best option for a cheap setup.

    Shimano 105 5600-series shifters (10-speed with cables outside of bar tape) were double or triple compatible (whereas Ultegra and Dura Ace of the same generation, 6600 and 7800 series, were double or...

    Using the limit screws on your current derailleur is one option, but I have found that double FDs do work better than triple FDs for double cranks. Fortunately, FDs are one of the cheapest...

    I'm pretty obsessive about all of the FD options that Shimano offers and their compatibility, but I'm almost certain that what you're asking for doesn't exist (top pull triple FD that works with STI...

    I've heard of this once before. A friend, who is 150 lbs but pretty powerful, managed to break the 15-tooth cog on his Campy Record 11-speed cassette into two pieces. He was able to stop safely and...

    I'd highly encourage getting some clip-in pedals. Don't mess around with the road-style pedals, just get some Shimano SPD (mountain bike-style) pedals and some MTB shoes; you'll then be able to walk...

    All of our bikes now have 27.2 seatposts to keep life simple and compatible, with shims used where necessary. For the tandem captain's post, there is one 27.2-29.8mm shim in the frame, and then a...

    If you want to be sure that you'll have no hassle, then get an Airnimal folding bike! I've built up a Joey frameset mostly with extra parts that I had, so it has drop bars and 26" wheels and...

    TA makes all sorts of chainrings designed for all types of purposes, some of which may be symmetrical. The one I was referring to is a 46 tooth 130mm BCD designed for the middle position of a triple...
