Hi Jerry,

> Cyclotourist

I really like the Cyclotourist and own several (even a tandem set with french thread and so on). One of my TA's has the 66/58/32 chainwheel combination not seen so often (nice for recumbent or small tire sized cycles) :) May once be a nice additon to my totally off topic (or is it a KOF?) Smooth Hound http://www.thorusa.com/dahon/2007/smoothhound.htm Otherwise it would be a nice crankset for a fast randonneur also, using large cocks and long cage derailler too.
> So if anyone out there has a nice 50T chainring

There is a dealer here in Germany offering some of the classical TA chainwheels 49-51 for 7 Euro in the moment. Don't know how much he has and also don't know if he will ship overseas but yóu may ask: http://www.bruegelmann-shop.de/shop/detail.php4?artnr=8228038

You get a contact form when clicking on "Fragen zum Produkt"

Good luck. If it doesn't work, we may trade, I'm looking for old stronglight dust caps in the moment and a pair of Bluemels Shorties Tour de France or a pair of small shorties in yellow or red.

best regards, Richard
