hehe, not really. i ride mostly 90 gear inches now. 51tX15t and 48tX14t. this one (52tX15t) was at around 92 gear inches. it's mostly flats here in Manila and you have to keep up with the traffic. otherwise, you're just a nuisance on the road if you ride slow and that's more dangerous.

manilanimal says:

thanks man.

the Crononero Low Riders are the best bullhorns i've tried. quiet comfortable, especially as i'm used to narrow B123 drops. you should go for it.
