Morning All, After some advice, in a few weeks I am off to cycle to the top of Mount Ventoux, the overall climb is 2000m in 21km, but the middle 10k is around 10% gradient and well known as unrelentingly 10%. I am currently on a 18 speed Comp Allez, with Ultegra cranks etc. Currently I am I would say a fairly capable cyclist, I am knocking off a hilly 45m in around 2 hours, 10 minutes. However I am seriously worried that I need granny gears for this. Any experiences, please don't go to technical to quick on gear ratios, I think mine is 53/35 front. Can I even fit a triple to this ?
