It is looking great and your mods are just right for it.
Looking forward to it all coming back together, just a good bit shinier :)

Interesting you are running a 30t cassette with 7803 group. Shimano state 28t max. I know that is dependent on the specifics of the bike but I take it there are no issues? And do you think it would handle a 32t without shredding the jockey wheel ?

You can change the cages to suit bigger cassettes

Yes, the group set came with a (I think) 26t 2004 DuraAce cassette, but I couldn’t drag my sorry backside up and out of our little Wolds valley without getting off & walking, so I swapped it out with a Shimano Ultegra CS-6700 10 speed SIS 12-30t from 2019 which unsurprisingly given Shimanos trickle down policy looks exactly like the older DuraAce, you really couldn’t distinguish any difference & so far no problems at all, everything shifting as smooth as silk...

As LGF says, it’s perfectly possible to put longer cages on if you want a wider range cassette, search some of his road threads....

Good answer... but not quite right.. :wink:


:lol: Just mucking about.... I’ve got myself two unnecessary and completely self-indulgent “upgrades”
The first is a Shimano DuraAce/ax set of handlebars... and the other is what the silly guessing game is for..


We’re still on YUM until next week :xmas-wink:
