Not the most exciting post to get back into blogging, but you have to start somewhere.
When I got my new Trek Speed Concept it came with Shimano Dura Ace 9000 11 speed groupset. Because I have a Quark Elsa Power meter I have swapped them over, leaving a surplus Dura Ace Chainset.
Good looking four armed crankset
Here the chainset is the crank arm on left and chainset and chainrings on the right. It’s a shame to have to swap because the Dura Ace 9000 four armed crank looks better on the bike than the Quark.
The chainrings are 54*42, which are ideal for time trials or flattish riding. If you are riding very hilly roads, a 39 inner chain ring may be preferable to a 42.
- Optimum power transfer & lighter weight maintains efficiency
- Uses Hollowtech technology
- New chain guide design to reduce chain drop
- 4-arm construction crankset maintains high rigidity and reduces weight
- Hollowglide chainrings maintain smooth shifting whilst reducing weight and increasing stiffness
- 110mm Pitch Circle Diameter for both compact and regular versions making gear ratio changes easy
- 54-42T. Other chainring sizes include 50-34T/53-39T/55-42T/52-36T/52-38T
- Weight: 683g (approx)
(My chainset does not come with bottom bracket, you can pick up a compatible BB for around £20)
I used it for a few weeks before replacing. It is in very good condition.
I’m selling it on ebay here as part of a New Year’s Resolution not to accumulate bike parts and bicycles.
Writing this post made me look up the difference between crankset and chainset. It seems it is the same thing. Crankset more common in US, chainset in UK. It is composed of chainring and the crank arms.
