Jo Routens randonneur, Viscount style

the 48T big ring on my Stronglight 49d crankset
a little low-geared
then I had a brainwave!
put a Viscount 52T "disc" on!
both have 50.4 bcd
which is kind of weird for such an English company
to use such a French standard.

now it looks more like a stayer bike than a comfortable tourer!

but very cool nonetheless and a good gearing for getting around quickly.
you can see I attached a TA 36T small ring in place of the original
Viscount 42T.
only pity is I can't use my lovely Jubilee sohrt cage derailleur with this set-up
as there are just too many teeth to cover.
