have all the gears in the back to match all the conditions. Uphill, downhill, it doesn't matter, you have the right
gear for the occasion.

i hope your sprocket cassette holds up longer than mine. I used a shimano 9-speed cassette 32T-11T with shimano chain on my 1000W middrive test setup. It holded up for about 300km till the 11T sprocket started to slip. The 12T slipped followed 600km later, then I bought a 9-speed SRAM gear hub. It holds up well (about 1500km-2000km yet, my odo sadly was reset).
I hope you have an odometer on your bike. Could you be so keen to keep an eye on how many miles your cassette/chain survives under these circumstances? I plan for another bike with derailleur, that's why I ask. I plan to only use 13T and larger because of my bad experiences. Maybe your SRAM cassette is better quality?
