    There are some KMC 10 speed links that are not designated as reusable. I encountered one on an OEM chain. It was very difficult to install. I would buy the newer Park tool, just in case. I'm a fan...

    Shimano also make, or did make an LX level group T661. A nice looking compact triple but I've only seen them on the UK sites. With the current popularity of "gravel grinding" there might be some...

    If you have a round seat tube, the Deda dog fang is inexpensive. I see the Trek Emonda has a catcher as original equipment. As mentioned, you'll know if you need one.

    A 10 speed crank will be fine with your 9 speed gearing. Use a 9 or 10 speed "road" double fd like a 105. You may need a 9 speed Shimano "mtn bike" rear derailleur. Sram and Shimano 9 speed...

    I've never noticed that the gators were especially slippery in the wet but I tend to ride conservatively in the rain. That said, since I went to the GP4000s a couple of years ago, the gators mostly...

    I would not pay extra for the 4 Seasons over the Gators, I have not found that they ride much better. Also, the 4 Seasons seems to run a little less wide.

    Tishomingo is your best option. The nicest riding on the Trace is to the north.

    I think he just wanted to post his own chain cleaning method. I doubt anyone thinks there is anything to add to the OEM lube story since last week.:rolleyes:

    I have found that it is easier to ride with gout than it is to walk. You may need to move your cleat back, away from the ball of your foot. Don't wear a tight shoe.

    A $20 chain would be appropriate for your component level. I prefer KMC or SRAM for the reusable link.

    I just disassembled my first 6800 rear hub. The drive side balls are loose, only the nds are in a retainer. The new design is very user friendly, everything just stacks up on the nds. No cone...

    I agree that replacing the smaller ring is cheapest but I'd be surprised if you could regularly spin out the 50/11. Some configurations are more common for a reason.

    I use the 12-30 cassette with a D/A 7800 rd. It depends on your derailleur hanger configuration. BTW, the short cage and long cage (GS) rds both handle the same size large cog. The GS just wraps...

    You need to use a caliper and measure the actual width of the tire that fits. Then you will know what to look for. My 25mm GP4000s measure 27+. Nominal and actual widths are not the same, as you...
