I'm doing IM Switzerland this year (2nd July)and want to get a middle distance in my legs to warm up. But I can't decide between the two above races. I fancy Bala because the terrain is likely to similar to the IM but would my legs recover in time? I noticed alot of you did Switzerland last year - did many of you do either of the above and what would you recommend.
Hi, I've been thinking about investing in one of these to replace my current 52/39 chainset. I'm a big bloke and struggle with hills, but I don't really want to go to a triple. The ones I've seen are 50/34 and the ads state that you make better use of your gear range.
Before I decide, I'd be really grateful for any advice/peoples experiences.
