Hi.

I currently have a 50/34 compact front and a 12-28 cassette.

I am thinking about trying out a 52T oval ring off a friend, would this be wise, or would there be to much diffrence in ratio?

Thanks

36t to 52t is the norm,34 to 52 may be a struggle particularly as its oval as front mech height will have to be even higher just what you don't want!

Thanks, front mech aside, would the ratios be all wrong, it's mainly flat in Suffolk and the routes I take, if there is a hill it's short and sweet.

Thanks
