Ride around Hearthfire in the evening for drivetrain tuning. Put the KMC 10-speed chain back on the bike (using the KMC Master Link from the Super Bike) and tried to dial in the rear derailleur. Shifting was imperfect and I discovered that the rings of the rear cassette were wobbly with too much play. Ended up putting in some shims to reduce play. Will resume fine-tuning tomorrow, perhaps repositioning the shims.
