NEW BITS ON ANDREW'S MERCIAN.
As is traditional the Bike•Brothers like to treat their machines to a good overhaul and and replace any worn parts. This year Andrew decided to replace his STI's, cassette, front and rear derailleurs and also his aging FSA chainset! Andrew decided to go 10-speed - radical! - sticking to his favourite Shimano 'Ultegra' which works just as well as the top of the range Shimano Dura-Ace but is better value. Andrew complimented his new gears by adding the new Shimano 'compact' chainset. The 50 - 34 chainrings combined with the 11 -27 rear cassette give a useful range of gears without the complicated setup of a triple chainset. Compact is the way to go....great!
