gear upgrade/change assistance


Recommended Posts

Hi all you techy guys.

I have a Monoc TCR concept road bike with Campag Mirage 39/53 chainring with Xenon 26/12 chainset & since moving from Jhb to the coast where there are many hills I find the gearing a little difficult & would love to have an easier gear to climb with, what is the most cost effective way to do this? Compact? etc. I'm 55, heavy build (not fat) & pretty fit.

Compact or even the change to triple ring. South Africans are a bit too proud for triple and will always advise get stronger and ride a double, but in Europe triple is common for the non-elite groups. May be a few hundred grams heavier but it will work wonders.
