    I've just got a new light pair of wheels and decided to get a 12-27 cassette (from a 12-23) so I can spin up hills better. Question: Do I need a new chain? ie lengthen it? Re-adjust rear and front derailleurs? OR just put them on and ride those hills? wayno

    Cheapie Road Wheels

    I just bought some light road wheels 1570g, with cheapie hubs but they do have DT Swiss spokes (probably cheapie as well). I paid $120 for them brand new. Has anyone got a set of these cheapie trainers? I'll give you a review once I get them on. If they are round and they roll, they would be...
