    This maybe true...
    BUT, I was 1 min and 5s quicker round our club run circuit after the changes than the previous week...
    Tyre rolling resistance and improved aerodynamic wheel set-up?
    I'd certainly not done any mega training between the 2 sessions.

    The bike feels much more sprightly and 'seems' to respond better to rider input... maybe that alone makes one go faster?

    Is a chain really necessary?

    If you want to go uphill, yeah! :smile:

    I know this through recent experiance... even taking your bike 1 mile to the LBS is a right pain, without a chain! :smile:
