As I am mostly 99% roadie and now 1% Mnt. Biker I would just like to hear some feed back on gear combination do's and don'ts. My road bike is equiped with Dura 10 speed, 53-39 front rings and rear 12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21-23-25T. As a rule I try to never cross chain. Ride a combination of 53/21,23,25 or 39/12,13,14. Mostly becuase I don't to prematurely wear out my chain rings, chain, etc=$$$$ and becuase I can find a close ratio with another combination. Now I've just gotten my new Blur and think I will practice some of the same. But now that I have a middle ring, I believe I can ride all the rear cogs while in the middle ring. Does that sound right? What do you guys use as a practice?
