Hello,

I'm primarily a web app developer (LAMP) living in the UK, but I'm interested in lots of other technologies, most of which are open source.

Currently I'm tinkering with my Arduino when I'm not doing PHP for $. I'm actively learning C and am interested in new languages and stuff.

comment Upgrading cassette - what do I need to be aware of?
Sounds like it could be good. Regarding the chain, I was just wondering if I had to specifically get one of the shimano HG chains for this or whether any old 9 speed would do? Also, there's no hills.. I live in cambridgeshire!

comment Best 9 speed cassette for fast & flat
I've added the correct counts now... looking at a shimano HG50 but worried it won't accept a normal chain? I keep reading the HG50 takes a super-thin chain of some type.. does that work with normal chainrings?

Also it could well have been 12/27 and just me counting them incorrectly! I seem to remember double counting the smallest cog a few times but I wasn't so careful with the big one.

There are definitely 9 cogs on my cassette - and SRAM is stamped on the lock ring. I didn't get a chance to count the teeth on my chain ring unfortunately. I am right in assuming 9 cogs on cassette = 9 speed right? I'm still new to a lot of this stuff.

It's a compact double. Not sure on the count..I'll have a look after work and report back :)

Note: Fast-ish that is. I probably average 18mph on my commute. I suppose the slowest top end of the cassette I'd like would be about 25mph.
