I might get flamed, but what 1 X 7 Drivetrain?
I going to buy a used Fuji Cross cyclocross frame and have a LBS build it as a 1X7 commuter bike for my daughter. This bike will be used in the Chicago area with no hills to speak of. I have a set of new 700cx32H wheels with a Shimano 14-34T, 7-speed cassette on the rear.
I need to select a drivetrain, including the front crank. Any suggestions?
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
