i live in central florida. pretty pancake flat, although this is the hilliest part of the state i have an ultegra drivetrain w a compact crank. i do have one dura ace 12-17, but they are kind of expensive. i really like having just the right gear w one tooth jumps. any ideas other than the dura ace? thanks in advance

i dont think ultegra do a 12-21

i would love a straight block for crit racing but dura ace cassettes are just too expensive for what they are

Central Florida is flat. On a 10 speed cassette you are only going to miss the 20t cog. Since it is so flat there, what difference does it make if you are riding with a 23t instead of a 20t? Also, why not look at getting a 11-21? Seems like it would work better with a compact crank.
