I have a 28 tooth small front ring (it is the eliptical biopace). I wanted a 24 but they were out so I took the 28 they had. I might look for another 26 or 24. the cassett is 11 by 34 so I dont see going any bigger than the 34 on the back end. I also need to hit the mountain with my trailer more. I can make it up ok without it. By OK I man, 3 mph and stopping once in the middle for a break. But I can ride it all the way if I force myself to.
