Thirty Twelve Twenty Eight Eleven

I bothered making the change from 28-11 to 30-12 for the Fred Whitton. Done, I am changing back.

On putting it on I was given the whole “Why have you got that, you will only use it?”.

The experience has taught me two things.

1. Rarely, and I mean RARELY does the difference between 28 and 30 matter, or even be something you can feel. If you are ascending crazy crazy gradients all day – then sure – every tooth counts… FWC FTW. However….

2. I miss the 11 more, and something is different in the middle – the progression is not as smooth. As such it is coming off.

So… there you have it – insight gained. Worth having – but for now they are going on my metal wheels for crazy stupid hilly rides.
