Should do a better job. I'm still running 8 speed on the MTB.toolonglegs wrote:So my problem is my 10 speed set up is fine at the start but half way through a race ( or even before that ) it starts skipping around when it gets full of grass and crap.
My solution ... I went out and got a 9 speed chain and 12-27 9 speed cassette that I am going to fit with a 9 speed Ultegra shifter I have lying round. 9 speed is ancient but much more reliable ( IMHO )... lets hope it works, if not it will just go onto the winter bike.

Um, yeah. I can see that now. A half chainguard may have limited the damage (for single chainwheel) but may have introduced other interesting problems...

PS... my wife has only once seen me race a bike in 20 years ... I won a big race in NZ that day... always trying to get her to come a 2nd time .

That's 111" gear. Thats bigger than a 53x13. It should be good for at least 65km/hr plus.
