    Triple is very nice for me. I have a climb where I stand and pedal with 30 x 28 setup (my cassette is 11-28). I would go with 12-27, perhaps, but I prefer having larger gaps so one shift makes more...

    Just to make one thing clear, regardless of the whic is faster:

    +1. I've had Acera for 3 years - whole year commuting, snow, rain, heat. Worked just fine.

    Deore, ordinary, not the XT, are a bit nicer, but not worth the price difference IMO.

    I stand corrected: I can get over MOST (99%) of the obstacles, holes, bumps, kerbs that are in my path where I usually ride. The ones that would damage even a 40mm tyre wheel are usually more visible...

    Depends on time and money. My experience is that anything over 8 cogs at the rear has smaller gaps between cogs. Makes it more sensitive to dirty/worn cables/housing, takes more frequent tuning. It...

    I prefer 2 and 3 tooth jumps at lower speeds. Makes one gear shift do more "work". At the fast end of the cassette, I like 1 and 2 tooth jumps. Riding a 10 speed cassette on a road bike and the last...

    Standard would be perfect for me, if cassettes starting from 13, or 14 teeth were easily available.

    8 speed would do: 14-15-17-19-21-25-28-32

    I'd prefer that - longer lasting.

    He seems to know what he's doing. I didn't see his riding as too risky, or dangerous - not for other cyclists definitely. I could be wrong, of course.

    Shimano road 105 with MTB chain?

    I have Shimano 105 5703 (triple) groupset. It said to avoid "asymetric" 5701 chain and get the older, 5600 chain.

    Can I also use this chain: Shimano Deore HG54 10 Speed Chain which is MTB...

    Correct me if I'm wrong:

    11 speed is not the same as 10 speed. 6800 is 11. 5700 and 6700 are 10 speed. Probably 11 speed has narrower gap between chainrings.

    Different thickness of cycling shoe soles, or different pedals even, will require some adjustment. Integrated seat makes that impossible.

    If one's job is not a phisically demanding one, bicycle commuting doesn't increase nutrition costs. One needs a minimum of exercise to stay healthy, so the commute fits about there.
