Six speed for the win. It's the true sweet spot.

Depends if the available cassettes for 11-speed are an improvement for your usage. They're not always...

I'm not sure what one more speed would do for me. When it's time, a front and rear derailleur would all I'd need for the Focus, and then I'd just make the TT bike electrical.

Could be. I have no basis of comparison. I will have to suffer with my perception of awesome. Or for a monetary consideration I could be persuaded to alter my description to absolutely fantastic, but the sum would be sizable

Yeah. You make a well thought out and presented argument. However that guy in my brain that is in charge of gear procurement is screaming rather loudly.

I have found a right red22 mechanical lever for under $200.00. Other adds I have looked at suggest the levers themselves are the same as 10 speed. Which tells me I could swap them out and still have matching cockpit. And 11 speed. A 11/28 cassette is around $40.00 (sunshine brand. I have one and it works just as well as the force cassette) So now it's seriously doable.


More gears....more better...amiright?

DST does not change the number of hours of daylight. The farmers can work the same number of hours either way.

They work outside.

They're probably, given their small numbers, only a fraction of those who work outside, though.

They don't much care either way. After they destroy the rental they're in, they'll move on to lighter pastures.

I have some clients in the hemp industry. But, is it the hemp industry or the hemp industry?

It’s never pluralized, always singular, “herb”.

What if I have both kinds?

Parts ordered. Wow chains are still pricey! The cassette was cheaper than the chain.
