I never did do bike paths. Strictly open roads (the hillier the better), and there are enough of those here. I also used to have Fisher Hoo Koo Ee Koo, and that was my winter bike and for off-road early Spring training on fire roads and logging trails. I ran very aggressive knobbies for off road, and mounted semi-slicks for the occasional commute.
One thing for sure, I won't try to have the same gearing I had on my Mooney. The rear was a Campy Super Record 8-speed racing cassette — a "corn cob" with a straight 12-19 tooth cluster — and the front was a 42/53 chainring set. My legs hurt just thinking a/b that ratio. I think now, a 13-23 and 42/52 is a/b as much as I could handle.
