I am after some advice about gears. I am looking to buy Dawes Discovery 601, the gears on the bike are
Rear Derailleur: Shimano 105
Front Derailleur: Shimano FD-R443
Shifters: Shimano SL-R440 Rapidfire
Chainset: FSA 53/39/30 175mm crank
Bottom Bracket: FSA BB-6000 Sealed cartridge
Chain: Shimano HG53
I have only ever had mountain bikes. Can anyone shed light on what these gears are aimed at, i.e. road gears for racing, MTB gears for multi purpose. I will be riding over the pyrenees during the summer so I will need easy (high?) gears to get up the hills. All I know is the 'big cog' at the back is the easy one.
