Really steep hills and a bike without MTB tyres but with MTB gearing's the way to go, so that may be a re-shod MTB, hybrid (Pinnacle Lithium springs to mind) or touring bike with triple (x many).Either is equally suited to steep hills. Really steep hills and a mtn bike is better.
I suspect he means front and rear sprockets of equal tooth count. I have triples with a 28T inner ring combined with a 28T sprocket, giving me a 27" gear on 700 tyres. With that sort of gearing you are getting to the point where you can lift the front wheel if you hit a bump, rather than running out of leg power.Why so high?
