I was bummed that the R7000 105 rim brake group set was 645.00 dollars. 2600 sounds much worse.

The group set is almost half the cost of a Di2 Emonda.

This is why I was quite happy to just run 105. It feels the same while riding. Just less swanky.

Yours and mine must have been separated at birth.

I like swank, but it wouldnít help me go faster or further. There would be no ROI of any value.

I wasnít when I was your age and had young kids. Took a lot of years and building the biz to get there. Plus, I had to buy my wife one too.

I started buying GM a couple years before it got delisted. I was tempted to buy some yesterday, bit was too skittish.

3) Otherwise, don't worry about it.

If riding long distance in populated areas, never pack lube. BITD, you could hit gas station trash cans and grab a quart of oil with a couple OZs left in it, now you have to dig in the AutoZone trash cans for free chainlube.

I like to let it soak in a bit before wiping. Hit the top run and the bottom run, one drop on each roller. Let it sit for half hour. Backpedal till you can see the dry spot on the top run hit the cassette. Drip both runs some more. Wait half hour then wipe. It's pretty much impossible to wipe too much.

That was 13 years ago.

It still hurts. Luckily I didn't get duped into a subprime home loan :)
