Haven't The Foggiest About Stock


Recommended Posts

Just a few questions really:

You'll need a mech hanger for an 07 Control, for an 07 Control....

And 160's *should* be ok, it's all personal preference, I was running 175's but I'm quite tall and prefer more leverage on the cranks.

And the gearings a personal thing again, try it out and raise and lower the sprocket size to get the right amount of speed and acceleration needed.

What mech hanger do I need for an 07 control? Don't know sorry

What gear ratio should I be running (I have an 18t surly on the front)? 18:15 or 18:16 (probably 18:16 if you want small cranks)

Will my 160mm cranks be ok on stock? It's down to preference, if that's what you find comfortable it will be fine

If youre using 160mm cranks then I would recommend 22/19, 18/16 or 16/14 for your ratio on stock; 18/15 is recommended on 175 cranks. Personally I run 16/14 and it feels just about perfect with 165mm middleburns :)

22/19 and 16/14 both give 1.14:1 ratio, whereas 18/16 give 1.125:1 which is alittle lighter. If 22/19 or 16/14 is too light but 18/15 is too heavy then try 20/17 as this will be just about inbetween the two.

Its a k hanger you need

i would recomend 175 cranks ideally

and 18:15

But buying new cranks is an expense when you already have some :D

18/16 would be my choice in your position, personally I find it a touch light with 165 cranks so with 160s it might be ok, possibly alittle hard though.

for the record, i think tahts ab 06 control frame

Look on tarty/email tarty for the correct mech hanger

160's should be fine, although a lighter gear-ratio would be preferable with these

typically 18:16 or 18:15, although with shorter cranks i'd go with 18:16
