I ride a 2004 Cannondale R2000. I love the ride but I want to expand the climbing capability. My current gearing is a 12x27 with the climbing gear a "27" but I would like to go a bit bigger.
Can I bump up to the 6700 or should I consider SRAM? What is the best way to transition? What do I need to consider?
My goal is better climbing as I live in NH and I love to climb hills and I need to catch up to a couple riding partners on the hills. One has a Madon 6.9 with a "28", he is also a couple inches shorter and 10 lbs lighter.
I'd love a new bike but I have 3 kids in college....
