    The crankset will only change the position of the cassettes ratio range, the difference will be the weight & rolling resistance.
  4. Oh come on Gaz and Gras...Postie is speculating on 'delivery' here...will the revelation come on Tuesday, or will it have to be 'kept in the bin' until Wednesday?

    Kneeeeeeds must I guess!
    Have fun Postie!

    Uphill will be harder as your rear cassette is likely to have fewer teeth.

    Aperitif, postman specifically asked what difference will he notice. The answer is gearing wise the ratio position of the cassette will change. What he'll probably notice more is the lack of mass compared to the Galaxy & the lower rolling resistance of the tyres.
