FIRENZE rulez !!
These chainring offerings need a 36 cassette which is NOT what we weight weenies are looking for.Besides that the 36 cassettes have larger gaps between gears...i don't like both the higher weight and the gaps of those large cassettes!briscoelab said:The 40/28 should be enough for most racers on 26" wheels and the 38/26 is great for the 29er folks. Go up or down as needed for your ability and strength.
Hmm, don't know what are you referring to when saying that those 36-cassettes have bigger gaps between gears ?nino said:Besides that the 36 cassettes have larger gaps between gears...i don't like both the higher weight and the gaps of those large cassettes!
I prefer somewhat smaller rings up front and 32 max 34 cassettes in the rear.This gives me a low enough gear while still offering a closer spaced drivetrain.
