lowest gear I used was about 25 gear inches. Actually never had to drop to small front chainring so I recently put the stock 44t ring back on!

excellent stuff...

the bromies have a small fold. on your bike tour was it really the small fold that made a difference?
or would you have wished to have more gears, waterproof panniers, bigger and more comfortable wheels?

would you tour again on a bromie?
