Has anyone any idea what track Darley Moor compares to for gearing purposes.

hi Mick Darlymoor is super quick, with long long- straights like the old snetterton Norwich straights, I think Micky nash run about 46 x 17 on your Bike, but you may wish to run slightly taller. but not too tall please, mind you Im happy to say you will lose most of your advantage at Dairley "cornering" there is only 3. ! lol. "thanks for the PM", and yes please do, but check your PM.

regards Derek

Hi Mick,

As a first approximation, I would try somewhere between Mallory and Oulton, i.e. similar to the old Snetterton 1.917 mile circuit. As Derek says, it is quick, and the hairpin exits downhill, again if I remember correctly.

Good luck!

Pete

Hi Mick my notes from my last visit in 1998, shows Cadwell gearing. Cadwell is always my default gearing
ie - if in doubt - Cadwell gearing!

Regards Mike
