Gearing for TT(2 posts)

Gearing for TTJEH
Jul 7, 2001 7:49 PM
What is the best or most common gearing setup for TT? I have a Cervelo P2K 700c, Ultegra 9spd setup, 172.5 53/39 crankset and 12-23 9spd cassette. I'm looking to switch to 55/42 or 56/54 chainrings and a 11-23 cassette. The courses will include the local motor speedway (Lowe's Motor Speedway,NC)and some flat to rolling hills.

I would think about using a 50/54 and a 11/21, there is not need for a 23. But gearing is very personal, and dependent on riding style(spin/smash). If it was me I wouldn't bother with the 50 just use the 54.
