Not everyone is a racer...

Not everyone has racing fitness and some of us live in places with steep grades (15%+). When I first started riding I actually ran a triple with a 12-27 and I needed every gear. Now I get up the same hills in a 39X23, but I'm a heck of alot lighter and in alot better shape.

Now take a ageing club rider who has the cash for a $7000 bike. Last year that bike might have had a DA 9 triple... Whats it going to have this year?
