    The 11/28 will have to have bigger jumps between cogs than the 12/25. A simple search will reveal where they are. One might fall where you don't really want a three tooth difference (not that I...

    I use two Wald folders in the back. I doubt they would fit three gallon jugs in each--not long enough, sizes are listed on the site. Wald now includes larger clamps in their hardware kit to...

    You can do a search, I did.

    Road Morph wins most every time same question has been asked...........

    That's no small consideration. The OP could recover a large part of the cost on eBay. The high price of shifters makes take-offs/light use sets worth quite a bit, and more so at his Ultegra level.

    Have you priced rattle cans lately???

    You shifter/brake levers won't work nicely. Flat/riser bar bikes most often use twist grip shifters or (I much prefer) thumb shifters. You are not going to make a sanitary conversion the purchase...

    At $40 that looks great. Report back. I have a San Marco Aspide on the road bike right now and have been toying with the idea of an "open"(w/cutout) saddle---for cooling.
