    Drive train wear is highly variable depending on conditions. Riding in wet conditions wears the drive drain and brakes extremely fast. Here in Texas I have two tandems, each with 10,000+ miles on...

    I am hopeful that the mtn triple FD cage can be modified to work with road rings. An expensive gamble unless one had a backup plan to use the Di2 mtn group if it did not work out. Even if...

    True it is the ring count that limits the gears but the primary reason for giving up a triple is often to allow for the right side sync. It seems that the main reasons two rings get used on tandems...
