  • Bit of a generic question, but what's people's opinions on 27 gear inch granny gear? Thinking of swapping out my cranks for a 1x 42t but worried it might be a bit high for my steel bike packing/cross bike, I mostly do European trips, a lot of Wales and occasionally Scotland. Cheers!

  • Sounds a bit high to me, mine's 21.7". Whenever I've wondered about a 1x set up, I've come to the conclusion I'd have a 40t for everyday rides/commuting, but something smaller (36t or less?) for loaded riding.

  • Are rear-facing horizontal dropouts suitable for kid trailer towing?
    I have a 2015 Longitude, would like to carry my child in the future on our tours, just not sure if attaching the trailer will cause axle to slip.
    Would using a bolt-on hub or 10 mm thrubolt like DT RWS prevent that or should I better look for another frameset with thruaxles or vertical dropouts?

  • It depends on the trailer. They have different attachments.

    I wouldn't use a burley hitch with horizontal drop outs.

  • A mate posted the link below; London-Barcelona is roughly equivalent to LEJOG by distance, so is it a better alternative?­elona-280273
