New Crank set and bottom bracket


Just wanted to say I updated my 2008 Fuji Touring Bike crank and bottom bracket to Shimano Deore M591 Crank set with Bottom Bracket (170mm, 48/36/26)
Had a 30/42/52 on there so my hill climbing ability should be a lot better.
I need all the help I can get at age 62 and wanting to tour plus there are some nasty hills where I live.
Just wanted to share.

Hi EZ,

That's a great touring crank. You can easily install a 22t granny gear, just use the 22 chainring listed here;
