Hi, I haven't posted since the cycling plus forum became bike radar.

I'm going to buy a 6 speed Brompton but would like some advice on the gearing options.

The bulk of my time on the bike will be a flat 4-5 mile commute, but I will be doing some harder hillier rides.

The standard 6 speed is- 3.22m to 6.87m (213%)

With the following options:

12% lower
8% higher

Any thoughts??
