Hey guys, I'm new to serious bicycling, but rode until I began driving. Still rode a little after that, but nothing to the point to where I'd need the support of a forum. I've got a novices question here: What does an 8 speed cassette which has a 32 to 10 range sprocket set-up accomplish vs. the same 8 speed cassette in, say, a 26 to 10 range or 26 to 12 range? Would one be more useful racing and the other be more useful for regular commuting? I'm thinking about messing around with my bike.
