    Sooo, after todays ride I've decided I don't get on with the semi-compact chainset (36/52) on my new ride. I have 34/50 compacts on the rest of the fleet, with 11-32 cassettes. Therefore a new one is in order, but which colour? Current one is black, but I kind of think a silver one may look better....

    Black looks nice when new and for a couple of weeks after that.

    Silver if you also change the seat post, wheels, RD and spacers (titanium). failing that - stick with black.

    Feel your pain over the semi compact chainset. I was forever changing between the big and small ring on the one I had. Didn’t have the legs for it!

    Silver, by the way.

    All in good time, as things wear out, or as and when I win the lottery based on the price of titanium anything...

    Except in this case, there are 2:laugh:

    I thought I'd be ok, but TBH I never quite found the happy cog, and always felt I was cross-chaining to find the right cadence. I suppose I'd get used to it, but then I change between bikes through the week so it would be nice to have a 'standard'.
