    Strangest thing you've had in your Bidon

    OK, I gotta say I absolutely hate the taste of water. Tap water or bottled don't matter, I simply don't drink it. Because I'm on a diet, I don't drink sports drinks either.

    105 FD question

    I want to fit a 105 FD on my bike. I currently have a 105 RD (9 speed) and Tiagra FD. I suppose the 105 FD won't be a huge improvement, but I wanna get the bike up to 105 minimum spec. Problem is, I often see a 105 FD on ebay with my clamp size, but listed as a 10 speed. Will it work fine...
