My other option- other than a triple- is to get a "Special" cassette that is 11/34 and use that.Now if I was 9 speed- then I could use the MTB cassette that is standard at 11/32 but I am 10 speed.
Now if I was 8 speed- Then it is possible to get an 11/28 as a standard MTB cassette but there are 30t cassettes around. 9 speed as I have said is covered by the MTB 11/32 or 12/34. It is on the 10 speed that is lacking in that I have an 11/27 cassette and will be getting a 34t for the crankset. Still leaves me a little high on the gearing for the mountains though. Still, plenty of time to decide if I need a lower gear- Once I have got the brain into trying a few more steep slopes.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
