    Ah, duly noted. I may have mixed my memories up with a thread about "how electronic shifting should work if the part companies cared about their customers at all."

    No doubt someone will be along soon to tell you for sure, but my understanding is that to go from 10 to 11 on Di2, you only need to replace the cassette and derailleur? The shifter only sends a...

    I was shocked when I got my bike home, counted the teeth on the inner cog and found out I had a 27. I'd never heard of such a thing before that very moment.

    The "6 states had 54% of cycling fatalities" stat is a bit out o context too. Between those 6 states you have 40% of the population, but you also have 6 of the top 10 and 10 of the top 20 largest...

    I don't believe there is a 12-28 11spd available. Other than 12-25, Shimano and SRAM's 11-speed offerings all replicate their 10spd cassettes with the addition of an 11 cog (so 12-32 becomes 11-32,...

    So more than a quarter of all bicycle-related fatalities were only on their bikes because they were too buzzed to drive home from the bar.

    Unless one of your reasons for wanting Campy is the 12-29 cassette, of course. SRAMano 11spds all go to 11, which is a sprocket I don't need (except the 12-25, which is useless to me without a...

    So there's no way to retrofit caliper frames with disks? Seems someone's missing a trick. Surely the back brake at least can be wedged between stays, and the front should simply be a matter of...

    I'm not sure if you're being serious. An inch is massive overkill. Your feet don't expand 8% in length under any circumstances.

    Feel on the bike is the most important thing. To the OP, it may be...

    A Dutch friend of mine recently knocked a couple of minutes off his Tri bike leg time with a closer cassette. If you're bouncing between the 16 and 14, it sounds like you could use a 15, especially...

    The BB30 on my CAAD10 is fine. Never had a problem with it.

    If you're building a bike up, I say pick the frame you like, and go with whatever BB standard it comes with. If you're getting a custom...

    They tried it in the past and the teams were having none of it. I think there might have been protests at the starts of some classics etc, and the team directors basically told the UCI to stick their...

    Yeah, but without a wristband you couldn't use any of the rest stops or get the t-shirt at the end, so what would be the point?

    You do realise that with friction barcons you could just throw a 10 speed 12-32 in there and have more range than you have with your 14-28, and more close spacing than your 14-24?

    I agree that if...

    When I go to the Groupsets section of their website it says the silver Athena is out of stock. Presumably you built it up with individual parts if you're not including the cassette and cranks?

    All Campy groups come with a English or Italian thread BB as standard, the pressfit options are extra. I think the threaded options are standard with Shimano too.

    I like to have 1 cassette that can cover as many bases as possible so I don't have to swap wheels out depending on the day of the week. So a 10 that goes straight from 12 to 17 is great for my flat...
