Found a 26 rear in the loft so I'll have to borrow that for the weekend.

What's the steepest gradient ?

I rode a 39x27 today there is some good climbs but nothing super steep as I managed it! ( though did moan quite a bit but that's pretty normal)

Yepp, Nothing too brutal. Probably 15% max so don't fret too much. 39x25 will be fine, 39x29 better :)

42x26 is what I've got, so I'll have to suck it and see. Steepest here is only 8.5% and I'm happily in the seat on the 42x20 (I think it is anyway, but I never count them :roll: ).

I'm up for this and if the weather is as dry as forecast will pitch up on the Gios, either smug or disconsolate at the outcome of rBoTM.

Where are we parking Dave?
