Topic - Road Bike Cassette

MattJP - on 11 Jul 2013
I could do with some collective advise!

I currently live in Mid Wales and I am looking at getting a road bike and a very long lay off!

Being a big lad, and Mid Wales being very hilly, I have been advised by some of the local lads to go for a bike with a compact chainset and an 11 or 12 to 32 or 34T Cassette.

These bikes fit the bill:-

and

I am going to a bike shop tomorrow to sit on a few bikes to find my size.
However, there are so many excellent bikes out there with great discounts that have 11 - 28T Cassettes. Would 4 or 6 teeth make a massive amount of difference?

Many Thanks in advance!
