11-28t or 11-26t...any big difference?
Hello everyone. I am a newbie here. Started cycling last Oct 2016 after retired from rugby & soccer due to multiligament injuries of my left ankle and right knee...but interestingly,after I started cycling, I was pain free even after a 60-mile ride..
Here,i need suggestions/answers from all the pros here..
Is there any big difference during CLIMBING if I use cassettes 11speeds 11-28t vs 11-26t? My crankset is 52-36t...i did few readings in google, and noticed that expert cyclist said the smaller the gear range,the better for our muscles & cycling improvement..which lead me to choose 11-26t..but i know with that 26t,my climbing will be more difficult..but is it really a big difference between these two?
