Does the parlee clamp play nice with the support bolt on the FD? I'm assuming you had to add the little adhesive backed metal frame protector.

Huh? I just put the clamp on and tightened the FD. Works perfectly.

There's a support bolt behind all the FD's on shimano electronic gruppos. It acts to support the heavy FD and provide additional leverage when shifting up into the big ring. I'd take a look at that, its not reccommended by Shimano to run without the support bolt extended (i believe it actually voids the warranty), it can cause lots of excess torquing at the FD attachment bolt, and can lead to premature wear of the motors in the FD.

@ Skywalker - interesting. I'll take a look.

@ Harold! What's up man! I definitely need to make a trip up to North Jersey and catch a ride with your crew after B-kill. You guys do the P.R. Ride on Saturdays?
