I cannot afford to have several bikes, but want one that can travel so I have decided to get one equiped with S&S couplers.
Most likely I will order one from Bilenky cycle works
Now I have to choose what to do for gearing.
I will use this bike for club rides, century rides lite touring and maybe some commuting. So what rear cassette and chainring set up would you reccomend?
I am thinking a Triple with a 12-25 cassette (shimano). Mainly because that is what I ride now on my current bike, but I have not done any touring. Several day long rides, centurys, club rides etc.
this will be a road bike, no off road riding. No idea how much extra weight I might have but planning on rear panniers/rack. Touring will be just a small percentage of the riding I will be doing with this bike.
