Here's Sheldon's gear calculator:

Plug in your numbers and see how it looks. Also,it would be a simple mod to swap in a MTB 12-32 cassette and derailleur. My Big Buzz has a compact double front/11-34 rear and it work real well in my hilly part of town.

Also,ditch the cross knobbies for some proper street slicks.
