I'm gathering some of the easier bits to go 9 speed. Luckily I have some great longtime friends that want to share some of their stuff, so I've now got the XO shifters and rear der, but have a couple of questions.
If this were single stuff I wouldn't be bothering you guys, but the tandem brings on questions, so I have a few hopefully easy ones.
9 Speed chains, I like SRAM chains for my other bikes but what is the chain of choice for tandems.
In regards to chainrings, presently we have Sugino 74 /110 cranks and I'm not planning to swap yet, so I'd like to find some 9 speed chainrings, probably in steel so they last a little while. I would like to remove the 26/36/48 and run 24/34/46 or 44. So any thoughts on brands as most seem to be aluminum, if you know about steel ones that's good too.
