Have I failed to find it or are there simply no more dumb questions?
That’s a dumb question itself I suppose.
My DQ is about nerd cranks and chainrings. I want to fit out my 110 BCD cranks with a pair of chainrings that will shift reasonably but coddle my fat ass in the hilly confines of Iowa City. I’m thinking a big ring of 48 or 46 and a small ring in proportion. I know know nerd cranks have been a growth industry lately but I’ve missed the boat.
I’m no expert but I think you might want a cassette. And what’s a cassette with no derailleurs? That’s like PB with no J. Also, little trap for young players - when you pick out your chainrings, don’t get two of the same size. Hope this helps
There are 110 nerd rings now. 48-30 110 exists on ebay by some lovecraftian horror that will drive you insane if you contemplate it. they have it for shartmano 4bolt and regular ass 5bolt. Make sure the number of links in your chain is in the fibonacci series for optimul performance.
I’m setting up a 10 speed bike with an ultegra regular not long cage, on 12-28. You’re supposed to twiddle the b tension to get the top jockey wheel 5 mm away from the big cog. Well, even with the b tension screw totally removed, my jockey wheel and pie plate are like 12 or 15 mm apart. Wat do? Rebuild the derailleur? Buy a new one? Just live with it if shifting seems ok?
