Re: Route needed from Wimborne to LE

Thanks James for your info, looks ok. I did the first 50 miles of this route near enough going towards Street and it's not too bad, certainly a better way than my last time virtually following the south ish coast down to LE and I should know better.Cheers T.

Re: new rear deraillier

Extra info regarding the above, At the moment the rear hanger is a shamano 105 2.1/4inches between centres of jockey wheels,front crank is a two piece 50/34. New cassette will be a 10 speed 11/34 and new chain. so what new length deraillier will I need. Old cassette was a 10 speed 11/30. Cheers T.
