My bike is set up with a Ultegra triple thats getting a little tired and have thought about going to a compact...the new Shimano looks nice! I ride mostly in the Cascade foothills so I tend to stay in more in the middle to high gears. I don't have access to a bike set up with a compact, at least one where I can have the time to really try it out. Would I miss the close spacing I get with the set up I have now? Any feedback about your experience vs. what you gave up would be appreciated.
