LZ’s Tech FAQ: Technical FAQ: Brake Dragging on the tire – Diagnosing front brake rub Dear Lennard, I just got a new(ish) race frame and was moving my mix of Campagnolo Chorus over to it.

LZ’s Tech FAQ: Technical FAQ: Mixing SRAM and Shimano – Mixing SRAM and Shimano Dear Lennard, I’ve got a full SRAM Rival Hydro disc 1×11 set up on my ’cross bike but want to convert to Shimano shifting — I just find the small SRAM lever too fiddly with gloved hands in race conditions. Do I need to change everything to convert to Shimano or can I just get new shifters? I think the cassette and chain are probably compatible but I guess I will need a new rear mech too?
