OK. Don't shoot me this is about a road bike. I'm 6' 4" and 208 so I guess it's good for Clyde forum. I'm both tall and 200lbs +. Thinking of getting a compact crankset 50/34. I like rides with lots of climbing and have always used a 53/39 paired with a 27-12. This combo has worked for years, but I would like to spin up some of the climbs instead of grinding them out. With the compact I would use a 25-11. I don't race anymore but still ride 500 miles a month. Any other riders my size try a compact and like it?
