I like the 18 cog.  That was new for me this year.


When I was a schoolboy, that would have required two blocks  Wink

Only 10 gears Cape?  Wink

When I was a kid I liked 13-21.  I could ride anything with a 42-21 back in the day.  These days its all compacts and 26 tooth granny cogs!

Cape - sorry about the thread drift, but I thought you might appreciate this



Is it any good?  I like the label.    Thanks, sheep.  I think it fits perfectly in this thread.  It's one of the reasons why some us started racing:  more beer!

By accident truthfully - started racing I mean.

I had been riding for fitness and weight loss. After a short while I realized I was quite taken with the sport.

It was a natural progression to first ride with a club then finally make the transition to racing about 3 years ago.

Best successes? A few wins in category 3.

My problem is one typical of women's racing in some smaller areas of america - with so few competitors and few flat races - it makes it hard for someone of my strengths to win. I've got a classic power profile of a strong sprinter with excellent anaerobic power but quite modest aerobic and threshold power.

Started cycling because of my dad. He got me into bikes. I will always have fond memories of him and bikes.

A compact with a 26 at the back is little more than middle-aged aunt, rather than a granny in my book. Grannies have at least 30 teeth, preferably 32. Smile
