So, there are lots and lots of gearing options on a given bike. As a Clydesdale, did you put thought into the gearing of your bike? If so, why and what is the gearing?
I have a Surly Pacer with Ultegra 6800. When I had it built 1000 miles ago I opted for the lowest crankset (50/34T) with the largest range cassette (11-32). At the time, being around 300lb I thought I would need the lower gear to climb hills. What I am quickly discovered is that it is geared too low, so I am considering either changing the cassette to a 11-28 (the cheaper options) or changing the crankset to highest gearing, 53/39T.
In both cases the low end would be the same. So the question is do I want a smoother transition in the middle with the 11-28 cassette or a higher top end with the higher geared crankset.
