Re: brake wear on rim
Ah I see. The only reason I suggested not shifting was because my Dad has had a lot of trouble with the chain jumping off on his shift kit equipped bike. Not sure where he got it, it's not the one on SBP. He plans to correct that problem by using an internally geared hub instead of the derailleur. But anyway, I guess the shift kit would be the easiest way to use disc brakes then. Though I might still try the spacer thing some day.
