i ride this a lot
barber is easy and i ride it fixed a lot (42 by 18 ), and then i proceed up and all the way down to the point where barbur crosses I5 at the 99W exit off of I5, turn left then take lesser road all the way into LO. it pops out in all of the commercial business off of carmen drive. you can then ride down into downtown, or stay in all of the crappy stripmall areas. beware though, my worst driver experiences have occurred in LO.
As for your gearing, that is a mighty tall gear for 500 feet of climbing both ways.
