Asking a few people with a great deal more knowledge than me I was pointed in the direction of the Stronglight 54T chainring.
Getting this reminded me of my old two speed Raw Lacquer S-Type. The chainring looks big and well made. I am told that it will simply be a case of bolting on. I hope that this is the case.
If all goes to plan I intend to use this in conjunction with my Titanium Orange Brompton which as regular readers will know I have been tweaking with. The 54T will provide a slightly increased top speed and many say a very useful middle selection of gears. The Goodwood racing circuit will be fairly flat with long straights. It will be quick and the extra bite the 54T will be a welcome addition.
Anything that provides even the slightest advantage to me and my Brompton at the Brompton World Championships can only be a good thing as believe me I am gong to need it.
My favourite cycling event bar none is not far away now and I hope that the next couple of weekends of pretty hardcore cycling will transfer into a respectable time at the big one.
Don't forget that you will have to put on a longer chain.ReplyDelete
