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? https://road.cc/content/blog/london-barcelona-280273
I'm literally costantly daydreaming about a trip these days
I've done both and would do both again! Different but not better.
Any input on this project?
I've promised to take a friend on a mini "tour" from London to a friend's woodland near Colchester where we'll camp (when things open up again). She's not done much touring before, so wanted to go on quieter routes, but Google is routing me straight down the A road from Romford to Chelmsford and beyond... Looking for something a little less busy – GPX files would be great!
I have a route from West Ham to Romford planned already (my commute), so from Romford - Colchester area would be ideal. Thanks!
I've done this before, not all the way, but to almost Colchester, generally nice, slightly busier around Maldon, at the time.
Looks ideal, thanks so much!
