Well, since we're going to be doing some major Blue Mounds rides this year, having some range, i.e. the 12-27, might be a good idea. Corncob 11-23 clusters are the mark of the Continental Classics rider, but for those of us with terrain to conquer, some extra help with the spin makes the climbs just that much more palatable.The question I must ask is, are you going full SR11 or are you mixing it up? If mixing it, skip the SR front derailleur and brakes - the changes are minor. The rear derailleur is a good SR touch, same with the shifters. The crankset is so pricey that I can't even get within 10 feet of one without opening my wallet up.
Mr ZThis is an abomination grouppo. I stole some parts from the white merckx (super record levers and deraileur) and did a little 06 Record Brakes out of Europe, Record Crankset that i picked up on closeout last year from Competitive Cyclist-Sold the chainrings and ebayed some campy-11 rings for their charcoal grey coolness. So White Merckx out of commission for now cause I was scavenging it like a good Repo-Man. I also sold my ambrosios nemesis to make it all come together. Final note. I am a spinner so I need a 12-29. who am i kidding.L=dog
Might as well go 12-29 with a 48/34 Compact... Then you can do that loaded touring in the Rockies you keep talking about. I'll sew up a set of canvas TIME pannier bags for ya.
12-25, no doubt. Even with standard road chainrings, you'll never use the 27. Your derailleur might not even fit a 27 without the pulley hitting the cog.
