If I can barely push a 30T/28t up a long 10%, what chance have I with a 34T/28t?

You change the 30t for something smaller.. , dummy..

A mass produced bike is built up with mass produced components
the crank set is bought by the truckload to get the best price.

once its at the bike shop, the individual alters the build to suit their personal prefernces

I have 2 very nice Campag triples , 50,40, 24t (nee 30t)


Other compact double lovers went for MTB RDs and the 11-34t cassettes
