42T Elliptical

I didn't have enough discipline and wanted to try out the 42T elliptical chain ring right away, so on it went. Despite the small 2T difference from the current 40T ring, the changes are very noticeable. I didn't have a chance yet to go down to gear one to test how it is on the hills I normally take, but so far I'm not spinning out on gear 7 down hills. My speed is about 1mph higher if at all. Not sure if the downhill speed gains are worth losing the low end.

I plan to keep the chain ring to build up more muscle and endurance, but have a feeling that I'll swap back to the 40T within a few weeks.
