Every rim/tire combination is different, but as long as it doesn't interfere with tire mounting, then using edge-to-edge tape allows the bead to press down on the edges of the tape, sealing them off...

Regarding the longer wheelbase: It looks like they aren't using a dropped chainstay design, so maybe to increase tire clearance they had to stretch the rear triangle back?

Overall looks like a...

Keep in mind that most cartridge hubs are only easier to service if you have the right tools to pull and reinstall the cartridges, or are willing to pay a shop to do it (in which case, you donít...

Itís not an illogical concern at all and youíre right to be thinking about things like that rather than just plowing ahead. Many manufacturers spec a maximum rotor size for their forks, but I donít...

That sounds pretty good. You could start with a "basic care and feeding" section for people like the OP who are handed a fully set up Di2 bike but haven't been given much instruction. So as you...

Were those aftermarket wheels 11 speed compatible by any chance? If so, that spacer is probably 1.85mm thick, which is needed to adapt "normal" 8,9, and 10 speed cassettes to 11 speed freehubs.

I've built a couple of wheelsets with these rims and they're great. Unlike rims I've used from certain other manufacturers (*cough*Velocity*cough*), the extra money you spend is all there in the rim....

If possible, look into using lower gearing and spinning up the hills more. This should result in torquing the rear end less, so less flexing, therefore less ghost shifting, rear brake rotor rubbing,...

Before you start diving into e-Tube, I think we need more information on how you shift. There are a lot of different ways to shift in Di2, and the "shift mode" you're in heavily influences both how...

I'm 99% sure that what you have there are standard Shimano B01S-compatible pads. Tektro/TRP is well-known to use Shimano B01S clones on a wide range of their brakes, so you don't have to go crazy...

“Ruin the bearings” is way too strong of a description IMHO. If you have the preload too tight, it will subject the bearings to elevated wear, meaning your bottom bracket won’t last quite as long...

So if I understand this correctly, you want to use an Alfine Hollowtech II crank (FC-S501?). That component is designed for a 68mm bottom bracket shell.

*Some* Shimano 9 and 10 speed drivetrain components are interchangeable within limits (e.g. rear derailleurs). Unfortunately chains are not on that list, at least not reliably. A 9sp chain is almost...
