That new ratio that some of us have been looking for to just give that lower gear. Fitted it to the Handbuilt wheels and then fitted those to Boreas. It is a compact crank- 50/34 and a 105 rear mech. Had to set the Screw that pushes the DR away from the frame as far as possible as on the setting I had it on- in 34/30- the jockey wheel was touching the 30 ring. Will have to check on the Pinarrelo as this is a full Tiagra groupset and is the bike it is intended for.
Couple of other things came aswell and NO PICS yet as I have been working on the bikes all afternoon. But New "Roadie" shoes. Shimano SPD-SL and model no. R077. Felt comfortable enough----Till I put the cleats on. Duck walk doesn't come into it. More like a pregnant Turkey. I have a set of Time pedals and I could not engage the cleats into the pedals. Loosened the tension to minimum and although not the easiest to engage- I did manage it. Unclipping is easy so no problems there. Advantage of these shoes is that they will also take SPD cleats so if I don't like the pedals I can revert to my A520's.
The other thing I got was a Race Faster Pack of High 5 gels and drink supplements. I want to try the various types that are available and this is the cheapest way to get a selection to try.
So test ride tomorrow---Now where did I put those Tombay certificates?
