trying to find the right gearing
I need thoughts from you all... i currently ride a cross bike on road with 36/46 front crank and 12-26 cassette. I typically cruise in the 46 and the 3rd/4th cassette ring at around 20-21mph.
I am looking at the specialized secteur with apex, but see that it is a pretty wide gear range, 50/34 and 11-32 versus the 105 equipped comp with 50/34 and 11-28.
Do you think i'll be all screwed up with the apex group set? I live in the midwest, not the mountains, but occasionally (especially at end of long rides) i will end up on the little chainring in front and higher up in the rear... that just seems like a fairly large range on the apex line...
