    OK, well I finally got around to finishing this build. XT rear shifter, 10 spd 11-32 XT cassette, Ultegra triple crank and front derailleur, and 9 spd Ultegra shifters. It all works flawlessly,...

    To reduce stress on the valve stem I remove the air chuck from my presta valve tube by grabbing the wheel at the valve with both hands and pressing evenly on the bottom of the chuck with both thumbs.

    I had this exact problem and it turned out to be a plastic rim tape that was so old it had curled a little and the edge was cutting into the tube right where your picture shows.

    The only metal on the frame is the rear drop outs so I guess I'll have to look at them again, more carefully.

    Thanks. I took off the rear wheel and looked at both sides of the dropouts. I looked all around the BB and head tube and even took off the seat post clamp to see if it was under there. I guess...

    Where is the serial number?

    I just bought and built up a slightly used ~2008 CIOCC Mutant 850 carbon road bike. I want to record the serial number for insurance purposes but I can't find it. Any ideas where I should be...

    So if I've understood correctly, I have to change to a XT RD-M771 rear derailleur. Will I be able to utilize all 10 cogs on the cassette or???
  12. road 10 spd shifter with Mt. 10 spd derailleur and cassette

    Before I get too frustrated, can anybody tell me if a shimano XT 10 spd derailleur and cassette will work with a 10 speed ultegra (road) shifter?

    Wow, you have all given me a lot of info to consider. I have both cantilever brake levers and v-brake levers as well as a pair of avids with the adjustable pull. I guess I'll experiment. I prefer...

    I would be hard pressed to just choose one of my bikes. If I had to choose, I guess I'd take the Bruce Gordon Rock and Road. I could tour, sport ride, and do some light mountain biking with just a...

    The 53 came with the frame. I guess that is a big jump. Would it help, as far as derailleurs go, if I moved to a 50 for the big ring?

    Oh, I guess I should have been more clear. I'm going to use a 10 spd shimano cassette (11-32), 10 spd MtB rear derailleur and shifter on Mavic Kysrium SL wheels. I have a couple of sets of those...

    I'm building a carbon road bike but would like to use a flat bar instead of a traditional road bar. I know I have to use MTB shifters but what brake levers will work with the road caliper brakes or...
