Ideal gear range for me

PostedJune 6, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
I bought this chainset to put on a frameset I've been building up into a multi-purpose bike. It is mainly for commuting and some leisure riding on towpaths and trails. I live in a hilly area and worked out that this chainset, combined with a 32-11 cassette, gives me an excellent gear range. I've previously had a triple chainset, but realised I had only ever used the highest gear combinations twice in 5 years! So this chainset gives me what I need, and is lighter than a triple. Installation was easy. The only slight negative is that the external bearing system seems very flimsy to me - I'll have to see how well it stands up to regular usage.
