Didn't know you needed to change brake cables. THought you just let some silicon spray slide down into the cable housing. Had a training buddy test ride my bike after new wheels were installed. Let me know my brake cables needed replacement. I usually go to a mechanic to do all my bike maintenance. He said I could do it myself. I bought these and the installation was VERY easy. And now, so is my braking. Looking at doing this to my other bikes soon since it was so easy and I felt such a great improvement.
A new chain can make your bike run like a deer. I love my Cannondale caad10 Ultegra, but even more when my favorite mechanic Todd puts on a new chain and tightens up the derailleur. Ride safe, but wear a bracelet with your medical contact.
This is the lightest and quietest Freewheel cassette I have used. I own two of these. The first one has 14,000 miles on it and looks and performs like a new cassette, I bought a second one to go on a new set of wheels. It was significantly cheaper than the first one was. A much easier purchase. I use it with eTap, but I am told that it works quite well with Dura Ace or Ultegra.
Decided to install this on my bike before a Gran Fondo just in case I needed an extra gear while climbing in the 4,500 ft elevation range. Glad I did as it helped towards the end of the ride when there was one last hill to climb at mile 95. Not only was the extra gearing great, but the new cassette was awesome with regards to shifting throughout the whole ride. Western Bikeworks had what I needed in stock and I was able to swing by and pick it up same day.
