    Ikea. IIRC, they're rebadged Electrolux.

    I am using Chorus 12 with an Athena 11sp chainset. It works fine.

    Annoyingly, the front derailleur doesn't trim in the same way that 10sp did. So there can be some rub in big/big. But obviously no-one would /ever/ dream of using that combination.

    Doesn't everyone have a musette under the kitchen sink that's full of other musettes?

    I'm using KMC chains with Chorus 12. They're fine.

    Found some Campagnolo 12-speed bits with hydraulics for the Tripster.

    I used to have the huge B&W box. It was a bit of a pain, TBH - slightly bigger than maximum luggage size, really heavy, and then customs tore it apart prising it open when it was unlocked.

    The B-bag was much better, especially with some tactically-placed cardboard to stiffen the walls a bit. Suspect the new one is a bit better balanced, too.

    My 2spd has been fine for nearly 15 years. But I did swap out the chain tensioner for an aftermarket metal one a few years ago.

    I have. A change of clothes, 13" McBook, and assorted cables fit easily. Shoes also, but are a bit more of a squeeze so I tend to leave them in the office.

    There is no sway with a Bagman. And having the quick-release makes it a lot easier to get the bag off at the other end.
