Better to look like a clown than ride like one I'd say (in case too cryptic this is a dig at me!).
Ok, didn't play tennis this evening so in boredom whipped the cranks off the 1x1 and replaced them with Campag Record with a 48t ring (what I had from the Crosscheck). No change of b/b and clearance is tight all round but totally doable. Needs as needs must when the dvil vomit's in your kettle.
Proof will be in the riding tomorrow but it is looking very purposeful and will scream at cars "don't mess". Not sure I can wear my Assos jacket with it though
If all goes well I'm likely to have a 60cm Surly Crosscheck frame, forks and headset all in excellent condition up for sale in the next few days.
