It looks like I'm now going to have a SS road bike after destroying the rear mech, the chain and a bit of the cassette, basically making the bike an economic write off.
A roadside bodge got the chain back on and at 39:16 seemed like a reasonable ratio. Thoughts on ratios? It currently runs a 39/53.
I assume chain line is not an issue.
No tensioner or means of tensioning as vertical dropouts and goosed hanger. The chain is quite tight so I assume not an issue.
39:16 good or not for North Shrops/Cheshire/(bit of)N. Wales?
