    Note that riding with narrower bars will not allow you to open up as much for breathing as before. As far as handling goes, you'll likely find that it will be twitchier and at first you might be...

    I haven't tried the GP4000s yet. I'm still on my stock of GP3000s I bought "in bulk" due to a really nice deal from a firesale a while back. When new they're pretty hard to get onto my Ksyriums but...

    Hmm... so you're saying the FD-6603 cage length was designed with a 13T minimum drop from the big ring. I suppose if a cage made to really closely match a 39 had too much length, it wouldn't clear a...

    I think you should just keep it simple and photograph everyone in front of a white garage door. :D

    Ah... you're talking about front difference. Yes, that might be an issue but at least on paper it should be okay. According to the spec-sheet, the FD-6603 has a 13T limit. Assuming the OP's cranks...

    Unfortunately, you cannot replace the clamp on the FD-5503. Newer Shimano FDs use a multi-clamp design though and will fit 28.6 as well as 31.8 diameters. A new FD-6603 is around $50 and will work...

    The outer to middle difference is not important with regards to a FD's capacity. The difference between the outer to inner is what matters. And in this case (52/42/30 vs 52/39/30), that difference...

    Good point but the OP did not mention what type of crankset they were going to use with the FD. And while it's true that the 9sp compatible FC-6503 comes standard with a 52/42/30, the curvature of...

    You said there was writing on it. What did it say? Remember to add the words "in bed" at the end when you recite it. :p

    You really can't go by that as there's no guarantee that the Navteq mapset Google uses is the same one that Garmin or TomTom uses. the same goes for TeleAtlas. There's too many variables on hand to...

    Eh. I like my FlightDeck and I'm not offended. BTW, what would the shifter be pulling if it didn't have wires? :p

    It definately sounds like the flexstrip connector between the internal shifting sensors and the interface pad on the hood for the FlightDeck computer.

    It'll work. However, the Shimano 10sp compatible (tuned?) FDs use a slightly narrower profiled cage. You can run a 9sp chain on them but expect a little bit more finickiness when it comes to...

    I'm waiting for the next incarnation of the aero-bar. The ones that position you so low they're attached to the axle... Skewer-Bar! Oh wait... maybe that's what post #29 was referring to. :D

    I go at it from a pragmatic POV. I usually remove the dork-discs because most of them being spoke-mounted just end up breaking due to spoke-flex... especially on my MTBs. Then they fall apart and...
