At the same time, I have really "bit the bullet" and gone full compact on one of my bikes - - plus a 28T at the back.Yeh yeh I know that I have been a hardliner on standard cranks, but time marches on ! ( Would never do this to my vintage steel as I keep that for the less demanding rides.)
Ok, you can all hop in and give me heaps now !
I know- - - I feel a bit woosey !
Any one need an Octalink 9 speed standard Dura-Ace crank ?
Crank is in very good condition with a couple of light scuffs, 172.5mm arms, and would come with 52T x 39T chain rings. $50 plus postage, and I am in Tasmania.
I luv my compacts!
What chain, rear derailleur and crankset is that? Gold chain, gold jockey wheels! And what are the sizes of the chain rings - the difference in size looks larger than a normal compact crankset.
KMC SL Ti ( Superlight Titanium coated, hollow pin, slotted link ) chain. ( Bike is 9 speed )
Jockey wheel is a anodised alloy with sealed ball race bearing,
Rear derailleur is Dura-Ace - - 9 speed.
Ritchey compact Octalink crank - - 175mm crank arms - - on Dura Ace BB with Ritchey 50T -34T chain rings. The 34T is actually a steel chain ring, as they last much longer than alloy 34T and weigh just 40 grams more.
