Re: How low can you go? Gears.

"May I suggest that (a) everyone is different and will have their own ability...." Just so. I need c.20" on an unladen machine (maybe up to 25" on a sub-18lb full carbon!) simply to return home up a pretty average hill. But this is now. 10 years ago I was OK on mid-60"s sing...
