Wanting to pair a long cage mech with tiagra 4600 shifters If you have the shifters then they are just a tiny bit below Deore XT, but quite a bit better than SLX.

Re: Lezyne GPS

The one common thing that hasn't changed with all the different tests is the USB socket in the Lezyne itself. :?:
If that is faulty then just maybe it can be repaired/replaced.
Even so that may not be the problem just a thought.
