    The newer Ultegra 6800 is much better IMO than 105. As others have already mentioned, you would need to upgrade the entire group set because the components are not interchanable.

    I will never own a Specialized product. The company has a long history of suing the little guy. Look at Epic Wheels. Specialized truly specialize in bullying anybody smaller than they are.

    Putting "For sale $50" on unwanted furniture is what I have done for years. Only once had someone actually paid; found the cash inside the mailbox about two weeks after the chair was taken.

    Sorry to resurrect.

    I read every post here. Not sure if it is wise to sink $700 on a rear wheel build with this hub. Really want IGH for my Troll. I will have enough saved to have this wheel built...

    Waiting at a signalized intersection when there is no traffic is silly. I will always proceed through the red light in circumstances like this. Last night while coming home I encountered such an...

    Out of curiosity, how often are people replacing their disc pads? My Avid BB7s seem to last about 5 months before needing to be replaced. Our climate here is mostly rainy, and I am starting to think...

    People First Language (PFL) is prescriptive and awkward. It doesn't work in bicycle advocacy IMO. PFL is a distraction from the real issues affecting people on...oooops....cyclists and motorists.
