Just been looking over some SS threads for ideas on a winter-hack, but not convinced that the legs / hill-steepness go together!
Has anyone tried keeping the front-mech and three rings, so in effect giving a three speed front a single speed rear?
Not sure if it's even viable, but would do away with the rear components that seem to take a beating over winter. Effectively giving you a climb gear, a cruising gear and a speed gear!
I may have lost the plot, but worth an ask!
