Pardon me while my Freddiness sticks out for a moment.
I have virtually no budget to get a road bike which means I may be in for another season of road biking with my old Univega mountain bike. In order to improve my speed on flats and descents (and have more fun), is there any reason I can't purchase a used crankset on Ebay that would get me up to a 50 or 53? Or is this just dumb?
Oh, and Merry Christmas!
