My next bike will be something like the SRAM WiFli compact double with a 32 on the back. I've had a triple for the last couple of decades and I'm tired for constantly trimming the FD. As far as wide jumps on a compact double, come on! Many of us 50+ers remember when a 10-speed was 2 on the front and 5 on the back. That was some wide jumps on something like a 13-26 freewheel. Now there's 10 or 11 gears on the back plus 2 on the front.
