    Haven't posted on here in quite some time but I just got this beauty last week. 2014 Ritte Bosberg 3.0 with Dura Ace 9000 and Chris King R45's laced to HED Belgiums!

    You should be fine, I can't see how the ramping and tooth shape of a front chain-set is going to be affected positively or negatively by having or not having yaw. Companies usually have A B C...

    Also, I second not calling a bike shop to have them sit on the phone with you educating you. Trust me, this is very hard on the staff, most of them would love to sit and chat about wheels but there's...

    From what I've seen/heard the newer Zipp hubs are of much higher quality than the older ones with the carbon end caps.

    Of course, and I'm not trying to say you're wrong, you've had a good experience with those wheels which is great; I demo'd them the second they were made available and enjoyed them. The fact of the...

    lol, well I try not to shell companies on here, I think the CX Ray is a decent spoke but personally would take a DT Swiss Aerolite over it. The Zipp hubs are definitely not the most robust hubs but I...

    I'll be going to 11 spd hopefully late next week. Not so much because of the extra gear, but because my Dura Ace 7800 has done it's job and I'm ready for something new. I do notice a bit smoother...

    Very possible. When you pedal backwards sometimes a chain will miss a tooth and pop up before it finds itself and goes back in. Like I said, assuming your derailleur hanger is aligned, your limiters...

    Are you sure a c59 weighs in at 1100 for the frameset?!?!? I've seen plenty of Sub 15.5 lb C59's easy. My CAAD10 frameset weighs in at 1150 for a 54. Doesn't make sense. I know it's like than the...

    Sorry, not bad wheels but they are just a shallower aluminum rim with good hubs, CX Rays and a quality build. There's other options that are as good if not better and make more sense for daily riding.

    Pretty odd, I've had a lot of people come in the shop over the years who have said they heard a weird clicking sound and found a chain kinked like this. Upon further questioning I've found that they...

    Did you suck or drop your chain lately? Typically this happens from the chain getting sucked between the frame and the back of the chain-rings or it happens from it getting caught between the front...

    For me, personally I find this to be a bit tighter than how I'd set it up. I wouldn't spend a lot of time in that gearing combo if you're going to run it like this as from my experience sometimes it...

    Not trying to be a jackass, but from my experience, if you're going to the internet to solve knee issues, you're going to have a bad time.

    Yup! Was talking to some Shimano techs and they said "We've learned our lessons about making things non-backwards compatible." Currently running 11spd C24's as well as 11 spd R45's and they both run...

    From what I've learned over the last few years, there's a lot of room relatively with front chain rings. I wouldn't try and run a 10/11 spd chain on a 7 spd front chainring but I think you can safely...

    I believe this is incorrect hence why new 11 spd hubs have a different cassette body and run extra spacers when using 10 spd cassettes.


    As far as your crankset goes, yes should not be a problem....

    Pretty good deal I'd say, if you don't mind the logos go for it. Dura Ace is a huge jump from 105, those were great bikes and the team/club I was with did the same bikes those years in our colors and...

    You are correct. I was bummed they took the H3 option out of the 6 & 7 line up. There's guys like me who want the more aggressive geometry of the Madone and don't want the ISO Speed or longer wheel...

    I would agree with justkeeppedaling, that's a big jump. Technically yes, you can change the bigger chain-ring to what you want now that they all use a 110 bcd. I haven't worked with the new...
