Re: This should work, right?

Second potential solution sounds like a microshift 10 speed MTB ratio bar end shifter (if such a thing exists). - they do, they're not great ime though. It's because of where the indents/'index click' point is and where the shift happens compared to where the lever settles back to... vague at times...

Re: Hope Evo Pro 2 Freehub Question.

If they're the 40T engagement version then Hope do make a freehub body that allows you to fit 11 speed road cassettes to these hubs. Otherwise you're limited to 8/9/10 and 11 speed MTB cassettes.

If only there was somewhere we could see such a right in operation in order to assess the extent of the problem.
Yes yes, we know ... you live in Scotland ... blah blah. You don't have to bring it up every time land access is mentioned.

Re: Lessor Evil?

It's taken me nearly an hour to get from the IKEA car park in Bristol to the M4 in the past... Traffic heading into Bristol on the M32 can be heavy too. It really depends on what time you're passing.
