82 Motobecane Grand Touring- crank change
I've had my 82 Motobecane Grand Touring since I bought it in 82. Comfortable, well made bike. It's a 15 speed(3 in front). I would like to get a lower gearing in front. French bikes were "quirky" in some components. Anyone know how I might go about this? I think the present crank is a Takagi Tourney SP. The largest gear in back cassette has 32 teeth.
