I like my 50-39-30 triple. The vast majority of the riding I do never needs the granny ring but when I'm further from home and facing bigger hills, or I'm towards the end of a long ride and there's a hill, I do appreciate having that 30 tooth granny ring. I've also got a wide (11-32) cassette. If I went to a 50-34 compact I could probably get away with a 11-27 cassette, but then I'd be struggling on the longer or steeper hills.
