    Which Chainring ?

    This Klein bike is my back up and easy day SS'er. I currently have it set up with the small 20t chainring in the front but it is just a bit too easy. I need to have this back up bike to do easy day rides and some extreme climbing from time to time. My question is do I go with a 24t or a 26t chainring replacing the 20t / 5 hole on it now. Crank is an old arse m 730 5 bolt shimano 175mm. Rear freewheel is a 22t white Inds. My main SS'er is geared 32 x 19. The Klein has also been 34 x 22 as in pic http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...59015#poststop Replace the 20 with 24 or 26t.......Which one ?

    Yup, the Klein is a favorite of mine also. I see you own a bunch of them. I was gonna build up a Red and yellow race colors Attitude N.O.S. as a single speed still in the box at my LBS. We went to inspect it.......no frame....just the box with parts and stuff.
