Building Poli Chapter Four: This May Get Weird
You asked for details.
We are going to talk about bits and bobs. All parts mus be transferred as efficiently as possible from one bike to the other. There are still no plans to procure new items, as upgraditis still hasn't kicked in. All parts have served me well for years on my current yellow bike. They are thoroughly tested and thereby trusted.
The cuts and bruises may not look entirely good on a brand spanking new frame, but each scratch is a distant memory of a fall or a close encounter with a rock and branches. So here we go, let's get technical!

Did I forget anything?
I can already now tell that an upgrade to a 27,5 wheelset with boost may be imminent. Those adapters converting the 12x142 hub to a 12x148 work fine while they sit where they're supposed to. The problem is to make them stay there when entering the wheel. If I have to remove the wheel when out and about, I'm afraid I will have to carry the bike home. Unless I bring sticky tape so that they will stay in place while inserting the wheel. This is not, by the way, an acute attack of upgraditis. Every analysis says it's much more sensible to buy a new wheel than to carry sticky tape.
