    They work very well for me, though I don't get flats often (now I will get one) so have only used them for one tire change. But changing Conti tires on my Flo30 rims would be virtually impossible...

    Yup, get a compact! You can even buy standard-size (39/53) rings for compact cranks. No reason to get a standard.

    34:28 was *awesome* for Diabolical Double. Lately I've been running a 36/50, which is a really nice combo. That 50t is just such a nice ring in front and less of a jump between rings makes for...

    What do you mean? I wasn't aware of any compact (110 BCD) cranksets that do not allow running mid compact. Is this a clearance issue, or?

    I have run mid compact on my Rival and Force (10sp)...

    The W&OD was sketchy when I rode it around 5pm. Not much better than the morning through Falls Church -- or west (i.e. the ice patches).

    I guess I left myself open for that. It's definitely not my power, but I probably do mash more than spin; maybe that wears chains faster. :noidea:

    In that case, hopefully you are getting at least 6k out of the chains! i.e. you only need to replace the cassette if you have worn the chain out ("stretched" it) such that it has ruined the teeth of...

    I found that stuff (middle cogs) were already skipping when I waited 'till 0.75. So I took Leonard Zinn's advice and tried 0.50 (or between 0.50 and 0.75, anyway).

    Honestly, I don't think changing...

    That is good -- I am lucky if I can get 3.7k out of 2 chains! I replace them (shortly) after they measure 0.50, though.
