cassette teeth numbers...
Hello all! I am rebuilding a Fuji Sagres for my wife. I am using parts from another bike and have some nice wheels that I'd like to swap to her new bike. The Fuji's 8 speed cassette has 26, 23, 21, 19, 17, 15, 13, 12. The cassette on the tire I'd like to add has 30, 26, 23, 20, 17, 15, 13, 11. Oh, they are 700x__ wheels- running 700x25 tires. We live in North Virginia and have hills. She also hauls a Burley solo trailer. My question is- which rear cassette would be better for getting up hills... Going fast on the flats or down a hill is no big deal- need to get up the hill first...
Many thanks in advance!
