Replace the cassette? If so, what combination cogs would you suggest?
Ultegra 12-27. It's unlikely that you need the 11t cog.

Smallest you can go is 38t (which may not work on all 130mm BCD cranks). That's not much different from a 39t.

If the 39x27 isn't low enough for you and your riding, it's the best option.
