I have a 1994 Cannodale T700 which I toured with extensively in the latter half of the 90's in the mountainous terrain of BC, Alberta, Montana, Idaho and Washington. I usually carried a full load of four panniers plus a large duffel bag on the rear rack. To make it easier to push this load, I put the lowest gearing possible on the T700. I can't remember the component names but hear are the tooth counts for the lowest gear -- small chainring:20, largest gear on cassette: 28. This is a gearing ration of .71 which made many of my companions envious!!
