My husband just put a compact crank on my bike for me -- Thanks Honey! I have only had a chance to ride the bike up and down the street a couple of times (with a hill) and it felt like I had one more lower gear then before. I will see how the weather is tomorrow and see if I can test it out further. The only problem with my bike is that my shifters are for a triple crank, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Before I had a double on my bike and the shifters worked fine. (Shimano XTR). My bike is a road bike frame with mountain bike components.
Does anyone else have a compact crank -- what do you think of it??
