Smaller inner chainring options???(1 post)

Smaller inner chainring options???Vamoots
Jul 14, 2003 2:18 PM
I'm running a 59/32 (Carbon Profile-Shimano Spider) and would like the explore the possibility of a smaller inner ring. I've tried a 27-12 and don't like the spacing and, currently, a triple is not an option (weight and really don't need it). Today during the Tour I heard that Tyler Hamilton was running a 36T inner. I looked up his drive train and (at least in my mag) he appears to be using Shimano. I didn't think anything that small would be available in a 130mm BD. Is a 36 or 37 available or do I have no option other than to look at CX cranks?
I'm sure this has been asked a zillion times but would appreciate any help.
