If you have 9 spd chainrings, you have to use 9 spd chain in order to have decent shifting.

I've never need a spacer on Shimano cassette body swapping between 9 spd and 10 spd cassettes.

While we're on the topic, I have an 8 speed setup, and my brother has a 9 speed setup. Both shimano. I'm not clear if we can share spare chain links or if we both need our own?

I went to Palo Duro canyon (Tx) for the "pain on the plains" race last weekend. The temps were in the low 50s for our 8:00 start time...absolutely beautiful.

We started out with a pretty strong group of 6 (19 total) for the first ~8 miles of the course....then they started dropping. I tried to hang with a buddy of mine but he pulled away in the hills. I finished 2nd in my class. This was one of my favorite courses in Tx for sure.

spare links?? I don't think I've ever broken a bicycle chain that was in any semblence of good repair. I did some 2 week tours hauling 60 lbs of camping crap up and down the coast of california, carried spare cables, spare tires and tubes, patch kits, but never a spare link. I've always assembled my chains with a chain punch, no master link required. I'd carry the little pocket sized Rivoli punch on a long ride just in case.

Depending on how worn your chains are.. most of the time you could get away swapping 8 spd and 9 spd chain links, your shifting performance may suffer a little but it would get you out of the woods so you could replace with new chain..

8 spd and 9 spd chain do not have the same connector pins, Shimano chains are meant to be connected by their designated chain pins..

I'm takin my girl out for a ride on saturday afternoon for the first time in MONTHS. My legs are gonna hurt something fierce.

I'm going to make it a point to get out 4 days a week until my birthday. If I can do that ill try to treat myself to something new, maybe replace by veloce set up with ultegra. But then I can get a new ultegra bike as cheap as I can get a gruppo.

Anyway wish me luck.

Since you run and cycle you ought to think about doing the Death Valley cup.

The Furnace Creek 508 is this weekend. I'll be there racing a tandem.
508 miles with 36,000ft of climbing. Should be a hoot!

When I did the Death Ride, I probably camped next to your buds. I was wearing my Comrades shirt, which gets you gasps of admiration in Africa, but no one at the Death Ride registration lines and pre-ride meal recognized it. Heathen.

But I camped by the side of the road ghetto-style and there were three guys with a camper sitting in their lawn chairs telling WS stories. I thought I recognized one as Tim Twietmeyer, so I strode over, flexed, and asked "can't a guy get any respect for this shirt around here?" They lit up, offered me a seat and we talked for an hour. It was Tim and two other board members.

Tweet is The Man!

I forgot to mention, the Firetrails RD holds the womans record at Comrades ~> 6:13:23 :deal

She also won WS 14 times, she was 3rd overall one year because Tweet pulled her in at the end and he got 2nd. :lol3

Cool lady and a good friend. The Bay Area has always been a hotbed of ultrarunning.
