Living in Florida, we don't do too much climbing, but I still want the option if need be. Trying to decide between 32 and 34 front chainring, any thoughts?

I'm in Florida and ride Alafia and Carter Rd. the majority of the time. I've been running 32T ring with 11-36 cassette and it works everywhere but I recently switched to a 30T ring to ride a little deeper in the cassette for chain line reasons. I'm thinking the 30 will be nice at the end of the day since the climbs are not long but they are steep as you know.

I live in Williamsburg, VA and run a 32T 11x32 combo and I have no problems with any of the climbs. If I were to head to Shenandoah, I would want more gear, but for my area, it works fine.

I have also run 11X28 in the past, needless to say, I will not be going back to that combo.
