38 single, 13/29 cassette
whats your CX race gearing?
I raced 1x8 in a 39t with 11-28, i felt it was pretty tough going on some of the wet draggy hills so geared down to 38t 11-28 and find that a good mix. I currently got the 39t back on through summer though.
sram pg850 8 speeds are great and you can pick em up for £20
Im not exactly troubling the fast riders though.
ive been in races praying for a lower gear but never a higher one!
also i dont have scientific proof to back it up but i think spinning with lower gears can maintain a better speed than grinding big gears at a lower cadence
with a shimano cx50 crank 36/46...is there a 42t outer ring that I could replace the 46 with (making a 36/42)?
So I'm the only one with a triple on my cross bike then!
And I'm the only one with a road compact 50/39...?!
But then, I mainly concentrate on 3 Peaks so the bigger gearing is good for the road.
Stupid question but can i run an xt shadow plus clutch mech on my cross bike?
38 x 18
is the following possible to make up:
Standard 22/32/44 mtb chainset and
matching cassette as it gets used on stuff like the 3 peaks
