Just bought a CX bike (yay!) & haven't had a chance to rise it properly yet, but a quick blast round the block indicate I'm probably going to be over-geared. The rings are 38/46 & even in the 'small ring' the steep little access road behind our house felt pretty tough.
Obviously, I'll go for a proper ride or two first but I'm thinking a 34/? is going to be more my cup of tea. Also wondering if a single ring might be more than enough for me since I won't be racing.
Any thoughts/experiences? Particularly from other women?
Oh and cassette is 12-27 I think
