I don't think that's 10 speed, as opposed to 11 speed or 9 speed. I think that's 10 speed, as in 10 total, i.e., 2 front by 5 rear, and what such bikes were called back in the '70s when road biking, and "10 speeds", dramatically increased in popularity. Some people still refer to all such bikes as 10 speeds.

Meanwhile, in Italy, you see things like this on road railings:
"Marco, you will always live in our hearts"

It was. Surprisingly warm on Sunday morning and I had way too many clothes on. I did it twice for the first time ever.

Superb shots Jmilliron. We have that kind of light (as long as the weather isn't balls) at 2:30pm here - curse the clock change.
