In ordering my Calfee Tetra Tetra, I have to decide between 145 and 160 spacing. My good friend Greg and I have been debating the merits and drawbacks of 145 vs. 160 spacing. I do like the Shimano Sweet 16 wheels, and could use them if I go for the 160. However, Greg and I disagree on whether my difficulties in shifting to the 53 chain ring on my Santana can be traced back to 160 spacing on the Santana as one of the principal culprits, along with operator error.
I know that this has been debated in the past but my search did not bring up the posts on this subject. Anyone have a link on this discussion from the past?
