Yeah, I was hoping to just swap out a few parts, as I had done in the past, but turns out when you switch from a triple to a double, there are chainline issues (if you don't put the cranks on to spec at least, which I didn't at first, and ended up getting a torque wrench for the rest of the project after doing that right). Along with other things, I have had the chain hop off the front one time since getting it all set up, but I'm pretty sure that was due to overshifting and frame flex, I'm going to tweak down the outer limit screw 1/4 turn tonight just to be safe though. It's fun to be able to say you did all the work yourself, as well as empowering, but everyone here deserves a pat on the back as well, some of the finer points I picked up from those much more knowledgeable than myself here.

If I choose to do any other major upgrades, I think I'll take your advice and strip it down just to get a look at it.
