    Sora has steel chainrings, so they surely haven't been worn in 7000 miles. Shifters, brakes - I see people riding them year after year. Not sure what happened to your Sora, or what does "junk"...

    Note that 105 was mentioned - as being the most durable, not Sora. Nowhere was it said that Dura-Ace is less reliable than Sora, but compared to 105.

    From what I've learned, 105 is as good as it gets durability wise. "Above" that durability drops along with the weight. Anyone who doesn't compete doesn't really need anything "better" than a Sora...

    I like riding flats... and most of my ride from the 39 chainring. I also like having the small 30 t chainring for really steep hills, when the bike is loaded and/or I'm tired (after playing a...

    Yes, less good for the 39 middle, but more useful on the big one. I'd rather have a cassette that started with a 13 tooth ring, ended with a 30 tooth ring and drop triple for a standard double. But...

    Probably will.Still, from the middle ring I stay out of smallest sprocket in the back, and out of 2 largest ones at the back. To avoid cross chaining. Heard it shortens the life of chains and...

    So it comes down to big ring having less cross chaining for 17 and 19, but the middle ring having to cross chain a bit more...

    10 speed cassette: 12-28 vs 11-28

    I ride a triple 50-39-30

    Now have an 11-28 cassette, and I never use the 50-11 combination - too fast. I don't race so no need speeding up on downhills.
    With a 12-28 cassette, and a 50 big ring,...

    I'd rather use 39/21, than 52/28, less cross chaining.

    But I agree 13-28 is a better choice than 13-25. I prefer having lowest 2 "speeds" far apart and a lot slower - like bail out speeds for...

    I just grab the seat tube, and hold the bars with the other hand, to lift the front wheel up, so I can go up stairs. For down stairs, one hand only, holding the seat tube.

    If that's a problem,...

    It is. Traffic cops usually don't care about cyclists, but a few weeks ago I was ordered to move to the bike lane by one cop. I'm not sure whether there's a fine proposed, but...

    It was about the part where it is illegal and would be fined by a judge. After being spat, or even slapped on the face, if the attacker didn't continue attacking you, in my country it would...

    If I spat in your face and you punched me, we would both be fined, probably "anywhere you've travelled", but could I really blame you for hitting me? So the law is one thing, and justice is something...

    Not really blaming, but he is also responsible. When you ride in the street, sometimes you get street rules, not the lawful ones. One must be aware of that. IMO the BMX guy over reacted.

    The idea is to do a swap in a local club bike shop. Find a serious training cyclist that needs the 10 speeds and has an 8 speed Sora on their bike.
