I generally cut it at $2 per gram. Anything under a buck a gram is a no brainer for me

Nonetheless, the benefit of cxrays are aerodynamics and tensile strength. I only use those on my wheels. ...

Are the other spokes bladed? Might be 80 extra for lighter and more aero which makes for a better overall value. If you did two wheelsets and ran them back to back on the same climb with the same...

I use Silca and Vittoria, which I think makes latex tubes for Silca to their specs. The valves are a bit different.

Prices have varied over the past couple of years from $11-$20 per tube, but...

In my experience you can “game” max power on a power meter for a second or two with a lot of torque in a big gear. However, I think it’s mostly a measurement error.

Havent managed to read it all, but lots of wrong answers.

You CAN mix 5800 and 4700, but NOT 5800 and 4600. You CANT use a 5800 STI for a 10S cassette tho, because the # of gear doesnt match, -11S...

Ive tried the 12-28 with a GS. You need to adjust the B-screw to make is shift quick and positive. I does work fine but I would prefer a SS given the choice.

If your shifting experience isn't smooth, then changing to 52/36 crank probably isn't going to do anything for that unless you have mix and match components and something is out of wack. IMO

Your first point is what is confusing to some people, as the shifter does not technically use the same pull ratio as 11 speed. It actually pulls a different amount of cable than an 11 speed shifter,...

I ran a 52-36 with a 11-30, it was perfect short of the most rediculous climbs and works with a modern short cage derailleur. Swapped it for a 50-34 for those climbs.

You need a spacer to run a 10-speed cassette on an 11 speed freehub, regardless - you wouldn't be taking it off and putting it back on.

More importantly, the cog pitch, the distance between the...

clear cause. How old is it? My rear shifter cable does this maybe every year, fraying at the shifter. Fortunately it lets me know, as errant strands start sticking in my fingers

It is entirely possible to wear a chain out in 4000 km. Those "rough and uneven" teeth on the large chainring are made that way to aid shifting

To the best of my knowledge the parts are interchangeable. The 105 might be a fraction of a fraction of a millimeter thinner, but should work just fine with the 10-speed chain.
