    My 2006 Record shifter cable frayed and broke prematurely (in my opinion). When I replaced it I realized it had been assembled without a casing-end ferrule going into the shifter although the...

    You'd think at least 50% of Craigslist ads would show the bike from the drive side, just by chance.

    No one is mentioning tape rather than glue? (I have no experience with it.) I always used FBNY's method and only rollled a tire once as a result of going down, never as the cause, but I never raced....
