    Hi,
    I’m after some advice from anyone that has gone over to
    follow the TDU on their bike. Do I need a compact (50/34) chainset or will a standard (53/39) with an 11-28 cassette do? I have also registered for the Bupa Challenge ride.
    Any advice would be most helpful.
    Thanks

    There are no mountains in Adelaide Lyndon, so a standard setup isn’t a problem. I have only ever done the Adelaide week on a standard 53/39.

    Having said that I have just changed to a pro compact (52/36) for Albi so will probably leave that on for Adelaide.

    Cheers
    Andrew
