Swap to 54T chainring on standard 2013 Brompton M3L?
I have been riding my 2013 Brompton M3L for awhile now and feel that I would prefer an overall higher gearing for it. I've never changed a chainring on a bike before so is there anything I need to know before proceeding?
For instance is any standard 54T chainring would do(something like this or I need "Brompton specific" one?
Just did the chainring swap from standard 50T to 54T at NYCeWheels, and I'm glad I went there instead of doing it myself. They used Brompton replacement 54T chainring so it comes with the chainring guard, added few chain link(I think just 2,don't need a new chain) and it's good to go in 20min for a very reasonable fee. The gearing now is much more to my liking
