I have sourced a GIMONDI 32 tooth 3/32 chain ring from Germany so hopefully that will do the trick.
I am running a single speed but the current 48 T ring is to highly geared for my old legs.
Lets see.
Regards,
Steve

Re: cycling sports wristwatch

Hi
Thanks
I was looking at the garmin or suunto range but there is so much to choose from !!
I need something a little bigger on the face than the one recommended here something that I can more easily read and see.

Hello,
Please are there any recommendations for a watch as above with a built in non belt heart monitor.
Which is quite simple to set up.
The availability seems mind boggling !!

Yorkshire Wolds/Lincolnshire Wolds

Please does anyone know of any decent off road routes around the Wolds. I know of some but they seem to include a fair amount of road riding. I want to test out my new full suspension bike.
Please are there any guide books recommended.
Thanks
