Hi Guys I am after a few pointers regarding my single chain set set, but firstly please accept my apologise if this topic has been exhausted already, I did do a search and found nothing that really answered my questions, maybe if someone has a linky that is a bit like an idiots guide to the subject I’d appreciate it
Right brought the bike yesterday and went for an exhausting 28 mile test ride to test the water, woke up this morning feeling like I have never ridden a bike in my life...lol...I know I am not the fittest of people but I am not unfit if you know what I mean
The bike has been fitted with a single chain set 42 teeth at the front end with a cassette with 32 at the back being the largest going down to 11 being the smallest, sorry if I am talking simple, but in past just been a leisure rider and now the kids have got older and they want Dad to do all these wonderful tracks and trials I felt a little out of my depth with this gearing so need to look into this a bit more technically.
So I have a Dotek YF Pro 6 crank with 43 teeth running a 32x11 cassette at the back = my legs feel like lead this morning
Feedback really appreciated and pointers even more so.
