Compact crank rocks!

As posted before, I was really frustrated with my Cannondale I bought some years ago. Simply could not ride the thing because it was to darn difficult! I thought I was weak or just severely out of shape. Anyway, the bike ended up a dust collector in the garage.
Spent a coupla hundred on a 34/50 SRAM and....oh what a difference! I'm a noob rider and just could not tolerate the hills in my area. Changing the crank turned it into a new bike! My enthusiasm is coming back and now I feel I can set realistic goals for comfortable riding.
My goal is to be ready for a century by next spring.
I think I can
I think I can
