    All bar end front shifters are friction, so nothing to worry about there.

    Personally I dislike the bumpy feeling of Shimano 8s and 9s rear shifters' friction modes. They're simply not as smooth as...

    UK sellers offer "triple" Veloce 10s. Are you saying "double" suffice?

    I'm very envious. What a great way to start Patriots' Day. Here's hoping BAA and MBTA are back onboard next year!

    IANAEngineer but I'm pretty sure the correct statement is "the closer the shoe is to the pivots, the greater the leverage." 55mm at the top of a long caliper offers no better leverage than 55mm at...

    Agreed. Longtails are for moving children, building materials, and kegs -- not general purpose touring. Even for bike-tent touring, most folks do fine with two pairs of panniers & stuff stacked on...

    One difference is Surly seems more likely to *upgrade* specs. Historically I've seen the big companies downgrade parts but keep the old price & model name. On the flip side I've seen Surly upgrade...

    My medium cage 9s Tiagra had chain rub on its cage in some gears whose chain line isn't bad when I used a 7/8s chain. Works fine with a 9s chain. Some say the rule of thumb is to use a chain designed...

    45-60 degree inclines? I call BS.

    Your hills might be steep, but they're not that steep. 60 deg = 172% grade. 30 seconds of web searching suggests the steepest roads on the planet are around 37%,...

    "My almost LBS had a Shimano 8sp cassette they tried on my hub but the 8th gear wouldn't fit."
