Elite Crono elastigel fluid trainer has suddenly got noisy

I had my trainer set up In my garage to use whilst watching the last 90 mins of today's elite world championship road race for men. The current onset of noise from the trainer made itself known. The trainer tyre I use is the blue tacx one and I did a workout combining sets of 95 - 105+ rpm high cade...

Re: 10 speed midrange gears using 11-32 cassette query

Think I'm going to get the 105 med cage and 11-32 next week and give it a go, the discomfort of riding up 18% and 20% grades on 11-28 has piqued my curiosity, just hope the midrange works out.....fingers crossed

Re: 10 speed midrange gears using 11-32 cassette query

Thanks. I've never been to NI, sounds like fun! On YouTube check out dromara hilly cornmill, very short but insanely steep 25%, I've been to it and couldn't turn the cranks if riding in a straight line. In the video watch all the bikes grinding to a halt and riders doing a del boy falling over side...

Re: 10 speed midrange gears using 11-32 cassette query

I fitted an 11-36 eleven speed for a very hilly tour and didn't really notice any change for later use un laden vs the original 11-32 which I guess is the exact equivalent of your 10 speed set up. So I think you'll be fine. Just out of interest, where are these three hills- sounds like a great ride...

Re: 10 speed midrange gears using 11-32 cassette query

Definitely agree 12-32 much more practical than 11-32, I couldn't tell you the last time I was in 50/11 , thanks for the replies so far.

10 speed midrange gears using 11-32 cassette query

On my bike I currently use 10 speed 11-28 with a 50/34 compact. I've started riding a new route which includes a max 15% climb for approx 1km, a max 18% climb which is about 1.5km long and a max 20% climb which is about 1/2 km in duration. The first climb is steep but doable for me with my current s...
