I got a chuckle out of the flag that Campy has in the header next to "United States".

Actually, no. The cassettes are mostly empty space, carved from a single block of steel:

Yeah, I found that interesting. The entire cassette is two pieces. That would be a great CNC machining youtube video to watch...

I should have said, the weight of the pie plates I am willing to part with $100.00 at most for I suppose.

As to weight and chain angle hilarity, the pie plate in question is a 42. Iíve had one on my Checkpoint for 4 years, with a 38 ring, never give it a thought. Ted King races on a 50, with a 46 ring.

I set up the Boone 1x11. 38t narrow wide chainring and a 11-42 Sunrace top tier cassette.

It is funny in away, it hurts my brain to have so many Di2 buttons doing only two things. ;) Be nice if the system would allow for more or less gear jumps [or shift speed] per shift per button instead of system wide, so to speak. #1stWorldProbs

I also have same range 11-36 and and 11-40 XTR cassette. They all shift perfect. The XTR I stole for 75.00 else that would be Sunrace also.

I admit I like the black Sunrace option, the vanity factor, yo!. ;)

I prefer a 2x11 I have setup with w 28/42 crank. The 28 only used as a bailout. But the Boone is staying as is even though I have what I would need to 2x it.

But as low low gears go, I won't need them much going forward. My latest med schedule change has limited my max HR yet another 20, I am missing cylinder needed for that work. And not willing to go 5-6 mph climbing.... yet... ;)

Damn cardo Nazi...

Dan, I can't find it, what wheelset did you get for your Ekar bike?

Rob, I got HED Belgium 650B rims with Rene Herse Babyshoe Pass 42mm tires.
Fancy carbon rims kind of aren't my style....

Any challenge getting the N3W hub body with it? Seems like not a lot of wheels offer them.

Wheels are custom built. Driver body is "DT Swiss EXP Campagnolo N3W."

On my bike with Ekar, I got some Fulcrum Rapid Red 5 wheels with N3W freehub from Merlin Ccyles in the UK at a pretty good price:

I probably couldn't have bought the parts to build my own wheels as cheaply.
