My new Campy 12 speed bikes with the 48/32 crank and 11-34 cassette have a slightly lower gear ratio than the 10 speed triple I used many years ago, with a 53/39/28 and a 13-29 cassette. There is a a way to get relatively low gear with modern parts. I regularly ride slopes in the 10-12% range and I'm 66 years old ( for a few more months).
