With 13/26 how do lose both the climbing gear and top speed? With a 26 don't I get more efficiency on hills?
Let's face it, I've got a Ferrari bike and a Corolla motor. At 200lbs., everything seems like a hill. I'm trying to find gears that make me as efficient as possible. High-speed racing isn't in the picture right now.
Can a 12/23 be replaced by a 13/26 or is there something more I need to be aware of?
Sorry to seem like such a moron. I just don't want to screw up my bike.
