Extra Gear


The Saint

Recommended Posts

A Shimano Tiagra groupset is a 9 Speed. A Dura Ace is a 10 Speed.

The extra gear that you get with the Dura Ace is it an easier gear or a harder gear?Confused

For arguments sake if I am going to ride Suikerbos, could I go to my LBS and rearrange my cluster to easier gears or is it a stock standard thing?

Depending on your ratio, its usually somewhere in the middle:

 

Dura Ace:

11-12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19-21T
11-12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21-23T
12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19-20-21T
12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19-21-23T
12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21-23-25T
12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21-24-27T

 

Tiagra:

CS-HG50-9 sprocket teeth combinations
11--12 --13 --15 -- 17 --19 -- 21 -- 23 -- 25 T
12 --13 --14 --15 -- 16 --17 -- 19 -- 21 -- 23 T
12 --13 --14 --15 -- 17 --19 -- 21 -- 23 -- 25 T
13 --14 --15 -- 16 --17 -- 19 -- 21 -- 23 -- 25 T
14 --15 -- 16 --17 -- 18 -- 19 -- 21 -- 23 -- 25 T

So what do you call Shimano's 14sp prototype? Hype?

What will they give you an 11; 11.5; 12; 12.5 etc etc or will they give you a 11; 12; 13; to 24???? Yes it is a hype!!!!! What would Pantani have done????? Even a world class component producer like Shimano can make a mistake.

 

OK my dear old dad said that I should never ever get rid of my 7 figure log book, slide rule and facit because these new fangled computers everyone is talking about will never take on!!!!!!!!

Stirring again, Big H? I wondered why the hub was so quite when you where "away" in SA!

What Muddy & Zaskar said, but on you question ("could I go to my LBS and rearrange my cluster to easier gears or is it a stock standard thing?") - maybe. The top 4 (?) sprockets are grouped with the bottom ones either paired or loose.

 

I would not upgrade to 10s for the sake of it, but would rather wait until I have to. Unless of course the expense needs to be justified to the GF/Wife, in which case you can pick up the hype off the various websites.

EB why the new avatar?????????????? 

 

Hmm, more in keep with my current form...The oh-so-attractive-plumber-look slightly adapted (and some would say perfected) to suit the cycling genre.

 

IMO the competition for "best" avatar will be between Sammas & Muddy...
