Small in the front, big in the back. If you err on the "too big in back, too small in front" side, you'll be fine. If you go in the other direction, you could end up blowing out your knees, or at the least, not enjoying the ride.

You start in the sport, give you time to get better. Take a gears you can support for the hills, when you'll feel you can take a bit more, you know what to do.
