I'm planning on modifying my Surly Crosscheck commuter for some light touring, and have a question about drivetrain gearing. I am running a 94bcd double crank on it, and don't want to change it out (impossible to find anything but external these days!).
I have been thinking about setting up the front with a 44-30 and the rear with 11-34. any thoughts on this? I will be touring around the Green Mountains in VT.
