    BTW, @ cyccommute, no gouge marks or scratches on the chainstay that I can see.

    Maybe what I am seeing in this video is happening. As the chain is shifted to the small chainwheel, there is some slack on the top segment, and somehow the chain becomes wedged between the...

    @ dobrado, "Is the chain getting caught between the front chainrings?" I would say yes, but it's hard to see from above precisely what is happening.

  6. Downshifting in the front: am I doing something wrong here?

    I'm running a 10-speed manual Ultegra drivetrain. Current chain has < 500 miles on it. Chainwheels (34/50) are new. So far as I know, front derailleur is properly adjusted.

    In the past few months...

    @ BoSoxYacht, I can only repeat my earlier comment. We averaged 17.7 the other day and I was pretty satisfied by that. But it was 1/3 of the distance you covered and perhaps 15 F cooler. Much...

    What was your average speed for the 80-mile ride?...

    What was your average speed for the 80-mile ride? Just curious. It was 100F here (SoCal) today, and I only did 25 in this heat, which to me seems awful. The forecast says 10 degrees cooler next week,...

    Maybe some of you wise people here can help me.

    Backcountry, a.k.a. Chainlove, a.k.a. Competitive Cyclist has a labor day sale. Likewise, JensonUSA, Competitive Cyclist, and many others I'm sure. Too bad I'm way over budget this month on cycling.

    I didn't catch that. They were selling the Lezyne Pressure Drive (which I use) for $22.50 a few days ago, and I was looking to link to that, but they were sold out. The hose makes all the difference...

    I find that I tend to unclip on one side (right side) at lights, etc., and this causes a part of the yellow base of my right cleat to wear faster. I'm trying to...
