Only casetes i'll run are now:-

DA 12-23 for the flats

DA 12-25 for general use

DA 12-27 for the hills... up to 20%

All with 53-39......

The 28 does introduce a number fo gaps which annoy in 4 gears for a small benfit in 1 gear....
Also the 28t is approaching limit or rear mech, hence crappier running (normall b tension is struggling to allow top jockey to clear), and takes the top jockey away from the cassette in the lower gears makig the shift more vague....

Running KMC X10-sl and 7900 DA chains with morgan blue road rcae oil... smooth as silk...... shift lovley....
