So, I'm curious... what size chainrings do you guys run?
I'm switching to 165 cranks tonight, and I'm considering trying bigger chainrings, or at least going to a 42 inner.
What size chainrings do you use, and why did you switch? Do you find there to be a difference?
Most of the timetrials are flattish, and even the ones with big hills don't tend to be anything that I couldn't get over with a 42.
FWIW - I'm anticipating racing at 142lbs this year, average height, and I'm in no way a diesel... I'm much more likely to be pulling the group on climbs.
My goal this year is to be fast enough in the Stage Race TTs that I'm not chasing 2-3' GC gaps when we do get to the climbing parts... anything beyond that is gravy.
