Do I need standard, compact or triple gearing on my road
Gearing is a small choice that has a big impact. There are
three typical options: standard (often chain rings with 53 and 39 teeth up
front, paired with a 12-25 tooth-range 10-gear cassette), triple (three chain rings,
with granny gears, often 50/40/30 or 52/42/30) or the increasingly popular
compact (50/36 or 50/34 chain rings).
