fhfr436 replied to Lan's discussion Do you think Carbon or Aluminum Headlebar is better for cyclocross?
"I don't trust carbon for handlebars, stems or seatposts. I've seen catastrophic failures of each. Not so with aluminum. I like the EA70 bar, Thomson X2 stem and Thomson posts."

"I bought two pairs of these also (1 silver & 1 black) on eBay and they were quite reasonable. I don't really see what problem an aluminum crankset can have except the weight. Time will tell."

fhfr436 replied to Richard Hislop's discussion Can you help me with my gear selection? I almost tore my leg off !
"Agree, that's just stupid. Sean, you must be a hammer. How can you push a 46T on anything but pavement in a CX race?"

"I think the 39/46T is fine, the 46T was a standard MTB big ring for a long time. The 11-22T is pure road racing though. A 12(or 11)-28T would be a minimum."

fhfr436 replied to Richard Hislop's discussion Can you help me with my gear selection? I almost tore my leg off !
"Having been away from racing and serious training for several years, I'm running an old MTB crankset (110mm BCD) with a 34T single + a chain guard (cut from a 46T ring). I have precious few times when I run out of gears on the high end.…"

"110mm BCD (Traditional MTB Standard and new Road Compact Standard) will accept a minimum of a 34T ring. 50T is about the largest big ring that you'd want to use, but for 'cross, I'd recommend a 44T, 46T or 48T."

I didn't even list my wife's Cannondale MTB & road!!
My first "serious" bike was a Cannondale in 1988 (replete with decal-matching yellow stem, handlebars, cable housings and saddle) and I've been a dedicated fan ever since.

btw, that's a whole lot of cdale. what's the connection or love? i still have my 2.8 too, it went to a friend this summer as a loaner. i have a hard time letting go of a bike even if i've moved on.
