      Yeah...it'll work fine. The difference in 9 and 10 speed spacing was pretty minimal. A lot of the replacement chainrings are marketed as 9/10 compatible.

      If carbon tubs are a must, look at something like Williams new 30mm deep carbon tubs. Light enough, considerably less susceptible to x-winds at 30mm, still aero, and only $1100.

      A 10 year old doesn't need aero carbon wheels. The speed isn't there to warrant them. It's vanity at the highest level.

      If you find a set of 6-bolt disc wheels, just order a set of rotors that are the same as the ones on the stock wheels. It's easier, and you know they'll work.

      700c is 29". Get a more aggressive cyclocross tire that's wider, or a narrow 29er tire. 26 and 27.5 are both too small and wont work...

      In the 6000+ miles I've ridden thus far in 2014, you know how many times I've considered changing my saddle height?

      It rhymes with none.

      For road and CX bikes, it's another answer to a question no one asked.

      People spend hundreds of dollars to get their fit dialed in on road and cx bikes. They are going to mess around with seat...

      Regardless of the higher math involved here, if you don't want them there, be frank and tell them to stay away. It's a funeral, not an outlet for their drama.

      It means nothing. They want to look good for THEM, not for you.

      And where they do it is of little importance.

      I have a Noah. It's a weird bike.
      Really stiff...nearly harsh at low speeds. Light the wick and it completely changes personalities.

      Here's an idea...
      Pull the BB out, clean the threads on both the shell, and the BB, re-grease everything, and re-install. Tighten it down to spec. If it still creaks, it's not the BB.
