(Up)hill-hater who is new to the cycling world (love at first ride) and trying to make up for lost time by immersion in trying different models, materials, building, buying and selling different bits (hopefully without losing too much money) until I settle on a few things that really suit me in different circumstances.

    Many thanks; so all campy group components with Shimano cassette/KMC chain and either campy/Shimano rings will work fine?
    Cheers

    So I know that for all intents and purposes Shimano and campagnolo 11 speed cassette free hubs are interchangeable. so does this mean that it would be advisable or at least appropriate to use a Shimano wheel Shimano cassette and Shimano chain and possibly Shimano rings with an otherwise full campagnolo groupset? Or would I use campagnolo for everything except the wheels? Thanks in advance

    Of course the imbalance of dibs is a pain but it's just not worth stressing about as buyer or seller! In my experience selling and voyeuring, 75% of dibsers then reneg often because of a 'greedy instant dibs' or 'reserve' something they or a pal may want, without any prejudice or comeback on them (a PITA but hey ho) however if a buyer doesn't honour dibs they're seen as a shoddy operator/human. Agree that common sense should apply from both sides or terms should be clear on posts (ie first to pay gets or I'll honour dibs for that same day) but it's a bit of a minefield and causes much consternation.

    (Tongue in cheek) How about a dibs blacklist (certainly not a bad trader but someone who frequently dibs bits but doesn't follow up)
