Sure, we could put it with the other sticky material that people are too smart to read.

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!

Folks nowadays are so smart, tech savvy, information oriented, multi-tasking gurus that it never occurs to them that which lies at the tip of their noses:

Most brand name manufacturers have their own websites...most of which are halfway decent.

Most of the info on the link is several years old, fine if working on a 2009 or earlier bike, but a lot of it has little relevance to 2013/14 bikes. If you want current info, you need dealer manuals https://si.shimano.com/#seriesList/1
