Oh I wish I could climb, everything rolls around here and I can barely make it up the meekest of hills. When I'm in my lowest gear it still feels like I'm gear mashing to make it up the hill.
When I talked to the LBS they were pretty tackfull but it was clear. "No sir they don't really make a smaller chainring." ... "Thats geared pretty low." It also embarrassed the heck out of me.
I know I'm not going to be doing any of the rides I really want to do for awhile. I don't know I'm just a bit frustrated at the moment I'll feel better in the morning. I just wanted to pity party for a minute.
