It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment First cyclocross race - how to choose and set up the bike
@Blam When I am going to write a longer post, I'll sometimes compose it elsewhere (typically Google Drive so I can switch computers if I need to) and then copy and paste it into SE. You might give something like that a shot.

@Blam You have edited this post six times. The two answers bumped it twice. And you bumped it six more times. Furthermore, you have established a pattern of creating an incomplete post and then polishing it through edits. This is not the proper use of edits.

@Blam Once again, please limit your edits. If you are not prepared to construct a completed post, please wait until you are before posting. Each edit of a post bumps it to the top of the list of active questions. Repeatedly editing a post takes attention away from other questions.

comment Can I replace only the smallest cog on my rear cassette?
Yup. Touring rigs are often set up that way from the factory. Just check that your rear derailleur can accommodate the bigger cogs. They usually list the maximum range in the tech docs.

comment Can I replace only the smallest cog on my rear cassette?
It'd be a smidge more range than you're after, but there are lots of options for 11-32 cassettes if you look at mountain parts. You'd just have to make sure that your derailleur can handle the extra couple teeth. You might have to add a link to your chain as well.

Do you mean ETRTO? If so, that's now called ISO. ISO is the label that you normally see on tires. sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html#isoetrto

Welcome to Bicycles SE. We ask that you write to the best of your ability on this site. This means proper capitalization, proper punctuation, and complete sentences. Your lack of sentence structure makes it very difficult to understand what you are suggesting.
