And here it is! Fitted an alloy compact Ultratorque chainset since I took this. It's got Veloce 10 speed ergos and front mech, a Record rear mech and RX100 deep drop brakes.

Re: Shimano 105 10 Speed STIs with XT 9 Mech

Thanks all again, fitted new chain and cassette. After a few adjustments all works perfectly, have a SRAM 12-32 cassette on order too which should make a few steep lanes less fearsome.

Re: Shimano 105 10 Speed STIs with XT 9 Mech

Wow, thanks all for the prompt feedback, will try check the mech against cassette without the chain. I might get away with just the new chain and cassette, but did think new cables might be needed too, they are a good 4 years old but are Jagwire at least. Good to know it should work and it's worth t...

Shimano 105 10 Speed STIs with XT 9 Mech

Hi I'm trying to setup 105 10 speed STIs with an RD-M772 XT rear mech. Should this work ok? I swapped out the old 105 mech for the XT mech when my LBS told me the 105 mech had developed too much play to shift reliably any more. Had the XT mech already for a MTB build so used it temporarily. Worked o...

Re: New Microshift bar-end and thumbshifters...11 and 12 speed

Timely thread for me as I'm contemplating bar-end shifters on an audax bike I've been rebuilding. Had it set up with 10 speed record ergos, finally got bars taped up at weekend and right hand shifter jammed! Changed down but now won't change up. My thought is to use Shimano 10 speed Dura Ace with a ...

Re: Roberts Audax second hand prices

Ok I just Googled Roberts Audax out of interest and this thread I started came up so I thought I may as well post an update. I decided to keep the frame and have it powder coated locally in Caerphilly. It's got a very vibrant May Green powder coat on it (in honour of my wife May!) and is waiting for...

Roberts Audax second hand prices

I have a Roberts Audax frame which I'm thinking of selling. Can someone give me an idea of reasonable asking prices? It's got threaded 1" forks, deep drop brake clearance and mudguard and rack eyelets. Paint has flaked off or been scratched on eyelets, edge of bottom bracket shell and both chai...

Re: Campy 10 spd cassette cog swapping

Just to add to this thread, I purchased a Miche 13t bottom sprocket & 18t middle sprocket for Campag 9/10 speed cassettes from http://www.xxcycle.com/cassettes-and-sprocket-and-miche,en.php (based in Toulouse) at the end of 2012. It took just over a week to arrive if I remember rightly, well it ...
