New Chain Ring

Had the 53 tooth chain ring replaced with a 39 tooth chain ring today. This effectively gives me 2 extra lower gears (while losing the 2 upper gears). I am more interested and concerned about my ability to climb up steep hills than in how fast I can go. I was able to test the extra low gears on my way home going up Birmingham Drive which has up to 11% grades. I can’t say that it was easy but it was easier.
