@tworldsmine: Something tells me this was taken after the headset/head tube incident....

That extra compliance of steel still helps - it helps get grip though, rather than smoothing chatter. :)

That's weird...never had that issue before. Are you sure you tightened the middle 2 bolts (the bolts mid-way along the stem) first? The centre section has to clamp down flush, otherwise yes you'll get creep issues.

It's got a threshold on the lockout (aka platform/floodgate/etc), so you don't ruin the damper if you hit stuff with the lockout on...and so that if you forget to switch it off the ride isn't awful/dangerous. So yes, a bit of audible feedback as a reminder is no bad thing. :)

Ok, so I'm not going to read all of the above...it mainly makes my miserable. I will fan the flames a little though... Since the value of GBP has dropped due to the Brexit vote, our bikes are now cheaper to international customers. Our prices aren't hit too badly either, since the materials we buy in from overseas are a smaller proportion of our costs than they would be if we bought finished products from overseas...so our bikes are still roughly the same price to domestic customers too. I still would much prefer that the UK remained in the EU. The world is a very small place in 2018; for many reasons it makes very little sense to divide it up into smaller pieces (and this little island is very tiny indeed!). There's too much separatism in the world too. People are just people, regardless of where they're from or what they think/do. How about we all just go ride our bikes? That's what we all like doing, right??

@woofer2609: DI2 etc are awesome to use...but there's something that doesn't sit right with me, in the concept of 'my bike ran out of battery'...it's just not right! The whole point is that it doesn't need power! :)

In the same way that confidence-inspiring is a con! ;)

@andrew9: If anything, harder...just not so much over makes and models of components. If I remember rightly, these were the M506? Yes, the lever is the important part...the caliper is just 2 pistons in a block. Even then you could happily lose the servo-wave gubbins so long as the leverage was sufficient and the rest of the lever was a good shape. Brake levers are the most important control in my opinion, since their shape and position will have a knock on effect on your body position on the bike.
