I raced with a 34x28 small gear (and used it often) and at the time my FTP was around 4.1-4.2W per kilo range, so that gives you an idea of the gearing you need depending on your FTP. I ran a really good run after that on the old hilly run course and squeeked in for 3rd in my age group (50-54), but I THINK if did not have a compact crank AND 28, I'd not have been able to execute a solid run. I was sub 5 on that course on that day
agreed, you won't regret it. Not long hills, but they are pretty steep in spots and there are a lot of them. Great race, but tough for this flatlander.
