Gummee, a question if you will. I just acquired a new to me bike with 9 speed Ultegra triple. I happen to have a 10 speed cassette. Are they compatible?

Basically what you're doing is being polite and letting people know that you're there so there's no surprises.

Exactly. And because you gave them permission to ride behind you in the first place, their lawyer will say that you are culpable for the accident. That's how it works around here.

That is what I thought but I knew you would know for sure. Pictures coming later today gotta ride it first. No special tricks to cutting an aluminum steerer, correct? For an aero bike the previous owner had an uncut steerer and the bars mounted at the very top. I have become flexible enough that I can ride with them at the very bottom, but will do a couple hours first to verify before I do any cutting. How much stem should I leave when I do cut?

Before you start cutting, swap spacers from below to above the stem. Its better to have it too long than not long enough. DAMHIK

If I have too much steerer, I have a tendency to leave it 'cause the next guy down the line may not be as flexible as I am.

When cutting a steerer tube, always leave a few mm over the top of the stem. Run a spacer (3mm/5mm) on top of the stem to ensure maximum clamping ability.

On a triple there is absolutely no real need for a 10 speed over a 9.

If it's a warm rain, I don't mind going & doing a set of interval laps. I won't ride on open roads. I might be delicate, but it's delicate compared to a 2000lb vehicle.

I've had some guys settle out on my wheel before when I'm riding from Baltimore to Annapolis on the BWI trail. The only time it was ever a problem was when a dad towing a trailer cut across traffic and I had to get on the brakes. I felt a bump, the wheelsucker had hit tire-to-tire he was riding so close. Nobody went down, however, and he was very apologetic.

True. I mostly want the lower cogs on the other cassette 'cause I live on the foothills of the wasatch front and climbing is my bane being a fat fuck and all lol. I may just end up using 9 of the cogs and a skinny chain.

the spacing's different between cogs

If you're running that 10sp cassette, you'll need a 10sp shifter

When I built this bike I did it for the express purpose of riding in the mountains, specifically Independence Pass. I should back up and mention that I live in New Orleans below sea level. The only hill we have here is a 5 foot rise in the levee path where gas pipelines run beneath it. I have a very nice Specialized Tarmac carbon fiber bike with non compact 2x10 gearing. I thought about making some changes to it, but the expense didn't warrant it. I built the pictured bike with 3x9 mountain bike gearing and I love it. I was able to tackle Independence pass and some other rated climbs relatively easily. SLOOOOWLY mind you.

With your cassette you likely have a 26 or 28 big ring. If you switch to one that has a larger big ring, you will likely have to go to a long cage derailleur. Do it. Go with at least a 32. Your knees will thank you.

That's what the cyclotourists do; 32T and MTB derailleur.
