Anyone used a 56T chainring for TT's (vs a 53T)? Excelsports.com has a Stronglight 56/55/54.

i run a 55 up frunt and an 11x21 in the back. did a 20k this weekend, using mainly the 55x13. there was a little wind on the undulating course. i like to push lower gears. i don't like to tt at 100 rpm, prefer the 90-95 zone. in the big gears, i don't let it drop below about 85 though, or everything falls apart.

What sort of a time did you do the 20K in?

due to the time of year, new child, and being ill, i was only able to post a 28:41. good enough for 1st in the 30+

that ought to be enough excuses, except i forgot the wind. definitely not my best time.

thx for info....

Do you have to adjust the front derauiller? The bike I am going to use will function as both Road and TT.
