    I was talking to a non-cycling friend about this popular video on YouTube where an elderly man right hooks a pair of cyclists. They chase him down and confront him in a surprisingly civilized manner....

    That issue with placing a frame mounted barrel adjuster: Is it possible that the cable guide could be too close to the frame so that there would not be room to install a barrel adjuster? Could that...

    Ultegra Triple FD on My Tandem

    I've had it for four years and no one can seem to adjust this thing. When I'm in the big ring and the smallest cog, the outer plate rubs. It is not because it is at its limit because if I pull the...

    Bad Attitude on Gearing

    My bike had a 53/39 with a 12-27. I did fine with it for several years. I would sometimes have trouble with very steep hills, but I would tend to ascribe that to my lack of fitness. When I failed, I...

    Questioning Conventional Wisdom

    When I have cereal, it is second breakfast/first lunch. It is working for me with no discern able negative effects, but I do modify it a lot. Out of curiosity, what would you eat instead of cereal?

    I presently have the 10 speed 11-25 Ultegra cassette with 50-34 chain rings. I'm thinking of getting a DuraAce 11-28 cassette. I assume this should work fine except for a B-tension screw adjustment....
