Non-ironic noob question.
Currently running R7000 (50/34, 11/34) on the adventure bike, which is absolutely fine as 75% of riding seems to take place on metalled roads with pretty average climbs. What's the cheapest/easiest way to lower my inches (or however it's referred)? I'm not sure R7000 could handle an 11-36 cassette due to 39T total capacity. Same problem for a 48/31 GRX chainset. I'd rather not change too much, as it's just for a couple of weeks in the Alps where there are some lovely looking gravel roads, but scary gradients. I know my weak legs will be longing for an old MTB triple, especially when loaded up for overnights.
Probably overthinking, but would prefer not to get in the cable car/hike a bike too much, especially as my partner will have a lovely e-mtb and it would just hold her up.
