    Good news! There's no reason to do that, so spend that time doing something worthwhile. ;)

    I've gone the opposite way with my bikes, primarily the '91 Bianchi Eros. It came to me with a 48/38/28 triple, a 12-28t cassette, and a long-cage RD, so it started out with an unusually wide range...

    I like to ride fast centuries, too. What you have will work fine. Put down the wrenches. :)

    Mig, the NCC Gravel Metric isn't C&V-specific, but is in the Midwest. The proportion of gravel and "un-roads" to pavement is about as high as they can make it. :thumb:

    Because of their shape, I think the smallest 110 BCD ring in Biopace was a 36T, and 40T in 130 BCD. I don't think a 1x10 system would be a step in the right direction at all -- what...

    Neither of them. The rider makes the bike go fast, not the gears. Give it up and ride your bike more.

    +1 to a very low-viscosity oil -- not grease -- for the freehub mechanism itself. Like FB says, anything that's too thick will stiffen in cold weather, allowing the pawls to lock up and cause the...

    That would be the dumb, labor-intensive way to do it. If you're going to clean the surfaces of the brake pads, just take the wheels out and wipe the pads with a paper towel soaked in rubbing...

    My brief experience with a SRAM PC-830 was disappointing as it wore to the 12-1/16" mark in only ~1500 miles. The PC-870 looks really sharp, but I think the 850 is the best overall value. Both of...

    The calculator is a good starting point, but there's no reason to fret over 1cm. Does your 56cm feel good? That's the only thing that matters here!

    So were they able to demonstrate the front shifting correctly at the shop before you took it home?

    Might be cheapest to keep your eyes open (or just plain ask) for a used World Voyageur frame to turn up in the C&V forum. ;)

    My vote is for the black ones as well -- the white ones match other stuff on the bike, but it's a little too much for my taste.

    Disappointing for a city that's trying so hard to be bike friendly -- is that pretty common in Portland? I've never had to bunnyhop anything on my commute.
