Not sure why I haven't posted this in here before.. had it exactly a year now, Strava says that's 3330 miles. In that time it's had a pair of tyres ( front now done 3k miles ) Rear wheel has been greased twice a chain and I treated it to a new Saddle for my birthday.

That chain ring looks large is it a 53 or more?

Cheers, bus is tucked away for the winter now Smile

Chainset is a Compact 50/34 The 11-32 cassette was handy up Hardknott, it's a tough one but great sense of achievement doing it in one go, was hot and sunny the day it did it, wouldn't fancy the descent in the wet!

I have seen cars get stuck half way up there and then struggle to turn round and go back down again because they couldn't get any traction in the wet.

That chain wheel looks bigger in the photo, it must be an optical illusion.

I run a 53 big chain wheel on my Lotus.

Suspect the chain ring looks big as the frame is small, its a 51.
