    Hm, let's presume that on 19mm width rim tire is lower profile than on a 23mm width rim.

    Thanks, managed to take a proper shot of the bike on the road, have to say 10 speed 105 is a joy to use, very crisp shifting and setting up the bottom bracket and cranks seems like a child's play!

    For now, as it seems, I'll score used 5700 groupset next week for a reasonable price. With little luck I'll be able to sell all my old parts and even earn some money out of it, or at least be at 0.
