- Double setup- gear ratios?
Hi, I am trading out my xtr triple to a new xtr double. Thing is, it’s. race with 32/40 chainrings. I am running a 10 spd 11:32 at the back so hopefully that might lower the range a little. I am a 43 yr old over weight weekend warrior, not a racing whippet with thighs of steelPosted 4 years ago
What day reckon, will I need to get smaller rings?BearBackMember
Both IMO.Posted 4 years ago
I run 29/40 with 11t36
29:36 is a great granny:granny ratio for climbs and a safety on long rides or yesterdays test of metal 67km 1200m elevation race. I’m normally fairly strong but wouldn’t want less than 29:36.. Although my hard tail is 32:11-36 but not an all day bike or race bike
