    How many extra links to start with for the chain (11 speed)

    If your cage length is too short, you're up the shit whichever chain-measuring method you use.

    How many extra links to start with for the chain (11 speed)

    Dumb way of doing it. Doesn't allow for chain growth, nor does it allow any tolerance to increase either chainring or large sprocket. Better way is chainring & small sprocket, through the derailleur (which is at its most retracted at this point), and pull just enough tension so there's no...

    The QUICK question thread.....

    I spec something to bar clamp

    I spec something to bar clamp

    11-sp. narrows it down to two possibilities.

    Can I sub a R.H lever member unit into a L.H lever body? (Shimano M785 brakes)

    They're different bits, basically a mirror-image of each other & not reversible.
