right, now i know it will work but i aint got a clue what tooth range to get.
Use the same route to and from work everyday, nice gentle downhill ride there with the obvious slight uphill journey home.
Think casstte on there atm is a 11-34 and i mainly stay on my top ring and work the bottom half of the cassette but do now and again drop to my middle cog when im knackered on the way home lol

Well if you still have 3 rings, go for something like an 11-25.

Ah but thats a gold chain, not yellow buddy.

All 3 look like good choices though although most tend to favour kmc from those. But no bad choice there in my eyes.

People just seem to find the kmc chains long wearing etc.

Only used the KMC one out of them and also used this one on the wifes bike and has been on a while but on a lower end Shimano cassette and found them to be spiffing. Had three of the Light one so far and one of the super light.
