I know a lot here use compacts- myself included-and I do live in a hilly area- but if you are still new to riding you have some fitness to find- and some weight to lose. On top of that- you are used to a triple. For confidence- I would go triple. It is very easy not to use the low gears if you have them- But a different matter if you need them and don't have them.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
