    Hey,

    That's a good idea. While I'm at it, I'll post the motor home, mansion, the 10 wives & 40 kid's.

    "All of those factors will save you 2.4 watts when youíre pushing 250 watts, according to CeramicSpeed. Of course, those gains can go away just as quickly if your chain is filthy."

    Also..
    But the $500 price aside, itís possible your shifting performance can suffer due to the lighter derailleur tension.

    As you might expect, major drivetrain brands discourage consumers from retrofitting oversized pulleys to their products.

    And the pulleys do hang much lower than a standard 11/11 setup. That means thereís more cantilever force the derailleur has to overcome in order to shift from one cog to another. This is another trouble spot that can lead to shifting sluggishness.

    Nope. Works just fine with DA9000 and 9100 at least.
