I've gone compact

Well, after quite a bit of thought, I decided to put a compact
crankset on my bike. With the 34 tooth front and 27 tooth cassette,
it is 34 inches of chain. In layman's terms, that means I will now
have an easier time of it on the climbs. My intent is to remove the
16 on the cassette, and add an 11 tooth. That will give me a bigger
gear than what I had on here before. I bought the crank used from a
nice guy in town, so if it doesn't work, I can return it. Everybody
tells me I will love it, we'll see. I'm going to go give it a try
today, and tomorrow I'll test her out on 6000 feet of climbing.
