    Dropping a couple of teeth should be fine and will only have an affect on chain tension when in the smallest sprocket or two at the back.

    My cx bike curretly has a 36/46 chaingring set up with 11/28 outback. I use the bike for mix of on road and off road forest road / bridleway / sustrans type stuff. I was think of putting a 34t inner chainring on to help out with some of the long grinding forest road climbs around here (s/mid wales). Will this muck up the chain length?? Will the chiain be too slack when I am in the higher end of the casette i.e. 28 etc and would I need something like a corresponding 44 outer chainring. Ta.

    Hmm, it’s this slackness that would be a worry – might look for a 44t outer ring.

    If you start going much smaller in gearing, it’s quicker to shoulder it and run.
