    I need one. I've dropped a chain on a hill climb before. Not fun.

    i just put my ring in the center position on a triple crank.. i still don't like running the lowest gear too long though since there is a lot of angle on the chain

    you will need some kind of chain keeper to reliably keep your chain on the ring. I'm getting better at riding in ways which keep the chain from dropping but it still happens and sucks having to get your hands all greasy to put the chain back on. a old front derailleur can be used as a chain keeper

    Can you manage it with a double? Just put the ring on the inside and a guard on the outside?

    A double works just fine. A guard on the outside ring, a chain ring in the middle and a keeper on the seatstay. If anyone one needs a guard I have a few sitting in my parts bins. They are 130 BCD and for a 42 tooth ring. PM me.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    The Blizzard is the most amazing bike... they are the only RM bikes that are still hand built to order here in Canada and I love the "Made in BC" decal. These bikes were designed for riding the north shore and makes light work of the single track we have here which has some nice challenges.

    It is nice to get out on the trail and not have to worry about dodging cars and worry about dodging trees and rocks.

    The '01 is Reynolds 725 and this is a stiff build... the bikes comes off the line like a rocket, changes direction at the speed of thought, and when you point it up it climbs like a goat on steroids.

    Despite being steel the bike curbs out at 25 pounds with it's lighter racing tyres and gains a little when you put on the bigger boots (2.35 Kendas) for more intense riding and white knuckle descents where those fatties really shine.

    Inherited this Shogun from a family friend. This bike is wonderfully awesome. I know very little about what year it'from or anything, but it has Shimano 105 components on it. I added the cheap Tektro levers becuase the old ones were in bad shape. My guess is that it's from the late 80's to early 90's. Any info is appreciated.

    That is a nicely made Japanese road bike built on Tange Infinity tubes and the parts spec puts it into the middle to high end of their lineup.

    Everybody join the C'Dale club!

    One day I'll build it back up... but not with those components... I still have quite a few things to hunt down before I get it setup. But there might just be another C'Dale in my future.
