haha it is hard enough trying to sort out if i want compacts or new cassette!
LOL. Get both. :-D
I think Shav is spending all you $$ Trent :)
I think there might some cash left in the budget for some FUIC Matt. ;-)
there's a special tool (costs less than $5) to get that off.
I have one floating around here somewhere, which I dont need if you want it.
If you want to climb faster, get compacts. PERIOD.
Even the pro's use em. 42 used to be the standard in the peleton and now 39 and 34. Thats with INCREASED 'preparation' methods.
