Building my first bike, Compact or Full Size crank?
Definitely new to the cycling world. Main intention for picking up cycling is to loose some weight and go on rides with my brother in law.
I saw the FC-R700 at a decent price and jumped on it, the Ultegra FC-6600 was a hundred dollars more at the cheapest price I saw. The Cassette i bought was the CS-6600 12-25.
I live in the Houston/Richmond Area, so there aren't many hills or inclines, if any! Would the Compact Crank plus the CS-6600 @12-25 be too short in gearing for flat riding? Should I return the compact and purchase the FC-6600?
Any help an input on this is greatly appreciated
