"A good firm saddle that allows the rider to move around on it during a ride if that is what you like to do. As it is a semi-round shape make sure you select the correct fit width by performing a sit bone measurement before you buy."
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

"Bought this cassette to replace the OG 70 cassette that had less than 2 years dry weather Spring to Autumn riding and had lost teeth on the smallest 3 rings quicker than a child loses milk teeth. The comment on the Website for the PG1070 'Due to extensive testing by SRAM ... the PG1070 will replace the older OG 70 during 2009' suggests SRAM had a manufacturing quality issue with the older cassette.
Only time will tell whether the new SRAM cassette was a good buy."
Pros: Good Fit

Speedplay pedals are incredibly lightweight thanks to intelligent engineering. The engagement mechanism is housed in the cleat, not the pedal, allowing you to have a double sided pedal with one mechanism (rather than one on each side of the pedal).

"Superb pedals once clipped in. No feeling of being "locked in". However, found getting clipped in not as easy as Shimano or Look probably due to the lack of adjustable spring tension. So if like me you are someone in their late 60's you may wish to go for a pedal that has adjustable clip in tension. The ability to adjust the float over a wide range and the leg length adapter are significant benefits to these pedals.
A word of caution when determining which of the shims give the best fit of the cleat to the shoe. The shims are very brittle so take great care when removing them from the cleat to shoe plate. I managed to break one!"
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit, float range, availability of spares
Cons: Expensive, unadjustable clip in tension

Whether you're looking for ultralight race or full aero, Dura-Ace has the wheelset for you. These alloy/carbon C24 (11 speed) wheels are a great choice for any road machine wanting to display nothing but the best.
 

Is the Dura Ace 9000 C24 Clincher Wheelset 2013 compatible with a SRAM PG 1070 10 Speed rear cassette?

Apart from the rear cassette currently fitted to my bike, the groupset is a Shimano 105.

All common systems are covered with this upgrade unit - making it ideal for Shimano, Race Face and others. The machined aluminium cups hold either full stainless steel cartridge bearings, or ceramic bearings in stainless races.
 

Which Hope BB Set for a Trek 1.5?

I need to replace the BB set on my Trek 1.5 fitted with a Shimano 105 Triple Group Set. The marking on the non drive train BB Cup is Shimano 1.37 x 24 Road. Which Hope BB Set do I require as a direct replacement?

are the Dura Ace 9000 C24 Clincher Wheelset compatible with the 10speed 105 cassette?

The answer provided by imaca is correct. The 1.85mm AND 1mm spacers are required if fitting a 10 speed Shimano 105 cassette or a SRAM PG-1070 cassette to the rear wheel: the 1.85mm spacer supplied with the wheelset has stamped on it, the 1.85mm and 1mm spacers are needed for 10 speed cassettes. If you leave out the 1mm spacer the gear shifting doesn't work correctly as I discovered.
Assuming the same holds true for other SRAM 10 speed cassettes then the answer provided by pkar of Melbourne is wrong.

Will this cassette (either 11-28 or 12-27) work with an SRAM Red short cage rear mech and a FSA compact chainset (50-34) ?

My understanding is that unless all your drive train and shifters are SRAM components the overall system will not work. In the past, I learnt the hard way as I tried a SRAM 11-28 with a SRAM Force/Red short cage rear mech with Shimano 105 dual control shifters and you only get 9 of the 10 gears. The individual movement shift pattern of the levers is different between SRAM and Shimano.

SRAM v Shimano

I presently have Shimano Ultegra 6600 groupset with a 12-27 rear cassette which I really like. Shimano have stopped making this casssette.

Will the SRAM cassette 12 - 27 be compatible with my present set up? Is this SRAMs 'equivalent' to ultegra range.

(I don't much want to change to the new Shimano 6700 range 11- 28 casette - too wide - and there is some doubt re compatibility anyway I believe)
Just replaced a SRAM OG 1070 with a SRAM PG1070 to my bike that has a Dura-Ace long cage rear derailleur, 105 front mechs, rings and and shifters and gear shifts are smooth and easy. The SRAM user manual for the cassette states "Any hub with Shimano compatible driver body EXCEPT DURA-ACE deep spline 10 speed casstte bodies.
