comment Risks/problems of a short chain
Thanks, the old chain was very worn (beyond 1%) so very stretched so I didn't trust that for measurements. So I'll go with adding back some of the links.

comment What differs between the Cervelo S5 and S5VWD
@Kibbee it is a Campagnolo bottle cage though. Therefore it allows the overweight & overpaid mamil on the bike which is adorned in a $100 cage the right look down judgementally upon any young whippersnapper with a plastic or aluminium cage, while said mamil desperately tries to cling on to said whippersnapper's back wheel... therefore it's good value ;)

comment What differs between the Cervelo S5 and S5VWD
So slightly lighter, same ride and stiffness qualities, higher price tag - all thanks to some different carbon fibre technology, and a very slightly different paint job. Thanks for the answer.

comment Rear index shifting not staying in middle gears
" not unusual for a SRAM chain to not play well with a Shimano cassette." ... I happened to buy a chain today for my shimano cassette, they only had SRAM 9sp in stock, I asked to check that it wouldn't be a problem, they said they are only specific from 10sp and up... whether or not that is true is a different matter, I'll see when I get on the bike tomorrow!!

comment Where to buy (carbon) framesets?
@peteH thanks for the tips. & to the close voters: I don't see how this is an opinion based question, I'm asking what suppliers there are for carbon framesets. It can not be an opinion that a supplier sells carbon framesets, it is either true or false, they either do or do not sell carbon framesets. I've listed three suppliers that are missing a number of the big-brand frame manufacturers and sought clarification of where to find brand name frames online.

comment How do I replace road brakes?
@headeronly you are of course entitled to do so, but I don't see why you would - there is nothing about it in the help pages and questions like this are why we have the "reference" tag. The reason I posted this specific question is because I am about to embark on a complete overhaul thus I've been thinking about all the specific jobs involved. I was surprised to not find anything regarding this and other related tasks on here, I can (and have) answered my own question in this case.

Posting a few similar questions like this today. I'm planning a major overhaul and thought it more appropriate, and useful to other users, to break up the question "How do I completely overhaul all of my components?" in to many smaller questions.
