    To be clear Crankin, my understanding is that there is nothing special about the short reach ultegra levers vs a normal lever, except for the fact that they come with shims. I learned this when I...

    Crankin, sorry to hear your experiences out of New England were not good. I think what made me react so strongly earlier in the thread was when you posted "How do you stand it" because to me that is...
