The smaller chain ring was great. It is 36 instead of 42 now. I went over the Fortes hill without pushing, I spun instead. For the first time on this bike I rode up the steep hill just before my house without falling off!
Day two was also cool for lights, although i rode home in the light somehow I had the lights on and didn't notice any drag!
Next step is to charge my phone and laptop while riding to work.
I was going to post a picture of my dream crank from Compass Cycles but it is copyrighted. Here is the link. Only $400. Even smaller chainrings possible. This would be the last crank and rings I would need, they would last the rest of my riding lifetime..
