If you are spending that amount on money on a bicycle, it tells me that you are planning on taking this new endeavor pretty seriously. Since you are taking this seriously, I would suggest getting the compact. It will be a little different but you will get use to it quickly. I looked at some of the hills you have to ride & I don't think you HAVE to get a triple & with any kind of getting small training; you will have no problem with those hills with a compact.
