Well, what you heard was wrong. Whether you go compact or standard depends entirely on how you pedal (cadence), where you pedal(hills, mountains, flats), and other personal factors.sphinks36 said:I wanted to get a new BB and I've heard that compact is the way to go.
I got my Shimano compact from Total Cycling in N. Ireland - free of their VAT (17%, if any pol ever asks you about a single tax system, ) for around $180. Their website is http://www.totalcycling.com/ - there's little flags on each page to select your currency. Also had to buy the BB, but that applies in US also. IIRC, shipping was about $15 and my order came as fast as any US bike stuff MO place I've used.sphinks36 said:I need some new cranks for my bike, but I'm not really sure what to get. I'm 6' 160lbs and I'm looking for a sub 200$ crank for a shimano setup. Apreciate the feedback.
