Re: Triple to double - old-ish Shimano

Personally I would always opt for a triple if there's a choice. The gearing on a triple is much less compromised to my mind. I can't see any advantage myself to a compact drive over a triple. The triple for my money has the best of three worlds. The compact feels like a compromise of just two worlds...

Re: Torque wrench 6-30nm

It's just the wrench. If I want to use an Allen key set what should I look for? Are you still looking for advice on hex bits, or have you changed plans on the wrench? Jonathan Hi, Sorry for the late reply. I bought some thanks. I will get a dedicated bike torque wrench set for the lower end as sugg...

Re: Moulton TSR9 chain length

Thanks for that. I don’t think the chain guards are necessary really. So without the chain guards it’s 119mm bb and a flat chain ring. You can’t buy a replacement chain ring if the dished one is worn you can buy a whole replacement chain set. I don’t think the one I have is worn but it’s good to kno...

Re: Torque wrench 6-30nm

The torque wrench won't really get a lot of use by me but I don't have the skills to measure 30Nm accurately. I want it for peace of mind really.

Re: Torque wrench 6-30nm

The Moulton has a bolt that must specifically be at 30Nm. Annoyingly a bicycle torque wrench does not cover 30Nm. This is unfortunate but it is the way it is. I do not control this requirement.

Re: Moulton TSR9 chain length

I'll photograph it tomorrow.
I would have thought a flat chain ring.would work perhaps the dish is there as it needs to push the chain line even further out?

Re: Moulton TSR9 chain length

Very true nothing to lose.
Chain set doesn't hit the frame with the original bb.
There are two chain guards and the dish goes towards the outer guard.
