    17t cog for starters. if you have actual mountains in your area and a mediocore condition, 19t.

    Yeah usually a 2:1 is a good place to start. I'm running a 34:14 right now but that's on flat courses with maybe 100 ft of elevation change. I'd say a 17t or 16t should be fine if you dont mind standing up for climbing.
