The SRAM road derailleurs and road shifters you've selected should work together. However, the bigger problem might be that you need a 10 speed cassette (for which you'd have to look up the hub to see if its 10 speed ready). It seems like the 2015 YVR model has a 10 speed compatible hub, but check yours. If you don't have a 10 speed ready hub, you'll ...

I ordered 9 speed cassette 12-36 and I'm just going to start with that. My current chain is pretty new, so I'm going to buy 1 piece at a time and see how it fits together. I'm going to do a little tour on it and see how everything feels. If I need to replace a lot of things, I should consider a new bike, but I love my bike and I'm definitely on a budget. ...

So you currently have 9sp, and you want to go to 6800, which is 11sp? Most likely Shimano would advise you that what you need to do is to buy the entire groupset. In reality, you could probably get away without replacing brakes and bottom bracket, although you'd probably find it cheaper to buy the set, rather than to buy the individual bits and bobs. As ...

Shimano 11 speed road cassettes are wider than previous models, so you most likely will need a wider freehub body. In some cases it can be bought separately, but given that you have 9 speed at the moment, I find it unlikely, so add an 11 speed Shimano road rear compatible hub to the purchase list.

See Klaster_1's comment. You could save a lot of cash by going for a 9 speed cassette with a larger large. Something like a 32 or 34 tooth will be available standard. Your rear deraileruer might be okay, and a new chain might be a good idea if the current one is worn. However you could get away with just the cassette. The other option is to put a triple ...

So after tinkering with derailleur position some more, I still couldn't get it to stop rubbing, that's when I had the bright idea to move the clamp bolt to the other side of the derailleur. Now I've got enough clearance that it doesn't rub against the tire and the chain doesn't rub against the cage. There's not a groove for the wire on the other side, but it ...

Assuming that the cabling is clean, that the derailleur is nicely indexed and well alligned, the derailleur hanger not bent, and the chain correctly moves lateraly +/- 4mm for each gear up or down, then I would have a look at the distance between the upper jockey pulley and the sprockets. The distance should be on all sprockets less than 25 mm and more than ...

The Cinelli spec for this bike lists it as "clamp on" and your picture definitely shows a clamp on style front derailleur. While it does seem like the factory build comes with a Cinelli branded clamp, if the frame you are buying is missing that part, you shouldn't have any trouble with a campy clamp, like this one: If you are buying a a new campy ...
