OK, i've never commuted in portland;
but do live in northern VT- we do have some hills.
my primary commuter is a 1x9 crosscheck,
34 t chainring with 11-34 cassette.
before I went with the 1x9, kept track of what
ratios I used most. they were 35 and 65 ratios.
the 34 t 11-34 gives me those, plus two above and
two below and a few in the middle.
up works great for me, pragmatic for a commute.
