Triathlon - gearing
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
How many of you change your chainrings and/or cassettes, depending on the course you will ride (i.e. flat versus hilly/climbs)?
If so, then what do you use for each specific type of terrain?
Flatland setup is 53/39, 11-23.
Rolling setup is 53/39, 11-26.
Hilly setup is 50/34, 11-26 (this will be how I role next year for TTT and IMOO).
In my opinion, many triathletes over-gear themselves (myself included). I rarely use 53/11 or 53/12, and I'm confident when I set up my bike with compact cranks this winter, I won't miss the 53.
