    Have u ridden lightweights? They are very nice riding wheels imo. I do sometines have them on one of my round tubed bikes. Theres plenty of bikes n riders that have great (read expensive) equipment that are very slow riders and also dont ride ti go as fast as possible. Now if u think that looks ridiculious thatd ofc fine but thats subjective at least.

    You can use a medium cage, tho a long reach would likely work better. Just make sure there is enough chain length in the setup to allow a big / big combo if you happen to shift to that at some point. What cassette gearing will u use? Some say a 29 will work with a medium cage in this setup tho i havent tried.

    You will spend a lot of time trying to get a polished finish. Refreshing a brushed frame is however only a 30m job for a frame

    Brush around the tube not length wise

    I thought russia had problems to even manufacture the high tech weapons they needed themselves in ukraine yet they are able to provide fighters and helicopters for iran?

    I dont know what to think of any military "intel" right now.

    Is 40 year the threshold for "veteran cars" in uk that is then exempt of taxes?
    Here its 30. My ghibli will be tax free next year. Saving something like 300 gbp wohoo.

    So what was the issue with the left hand shifter then?

    Works okay with dropbars after a bit of getting used to as i remember it but i mostly if not exlusively ride flatbars in the winter when i wear these. Id say shifting is more finicky than breaking from what i remember.

    And i use my phone a lot as a courier so beeing able to use my fingers without taking my gloves of and on every 60 seconds is essential and a priority.
