Well, now I know why.
Whatever you do, donít use Shimano parts for the upgrade.
You will become a disempowered and subservient bot if you buy even one Shimano part.
You should instead get exactly what you need at a lower price from Mom & Pop who should ofc live right down the street from you.
They will also playfully tousle your hair and give you a nice home baked cake to go along with it
