    why'd we leave out the option of 46/17?

    It'd be cheaper to just change your cog down to 16 or 15. But a larger chain ring will make the bike a bit smoother and they look better, though it is the...

    They're sugino rd2 cranks. They can be tightened with the 8mm wrench, which I keep in my Chrome bag. Unfortunately I've been having some shoulder pain lately, and opted for...
