If you have been riding these hills on a mountain bike or hybrid, you will have some idea of how low a gear you will need to get up. The easiest way to get a lower bottom gear is to get a rear cogset with a wider range, but you dont get as slick shifting. If you get a triple you can have a close ratio cogset at the back and still have a real low bottom gear. However a lot of road bike riders sneer at triple users.
