53-39 for PBP??
Will a double chainring in front (53-39) and a 12-30 cassette be OK for the hills in PBP or do I absolutely need a triple??
I ride/train 5000+ miles/yr., but it's pretty flat, so hills aren't my thing. Just want to know if I need to start shopping around, cause it'd mean I'd need a triple AND a long-cage derailer. I'm hoping the 30-tooth cassette and the 39-tooth chainring will be low enough.
