I have a GF Tiburon, with a stock gear set Crank 48/38/28, and a cassette with the 13-34 7 speed. Now that I have road my sonís road bike I was thinking that this may not be the best gear combination for me. I like the seating position of the Tiburon, but I like the gears of the Trek
I usually start out in the 2nd sprocket, and go up from there. I never use the #1 sprocket, nor do I use the 34gear on the cassette. This is making me wonder if I would be able to upgrade to a 30/42/52 crank, and a 13-24 7 speed cassette.
What would be the problems I would get into, and what benefits would I gain by doing this?
