I should have been more precise, I meant torque at the wheel, not torque at the pedals.could you clarify a bit here? I thought higher (harder) gear puts more torque than the lower (easier) one? on feel, it seemed to me that I am sometimes running too low (easy) a gear, and that it adds to the bounciness from the tires. I felt better when putting it in a higher gear or two, which drops cadence a bit, but it should also raise torque, not lower it?
Just to add to this point: it is good that you have identified this issue. I would start playing around, and in my experience it helps to start with more extreme changes and then dial them back.that is exactly how I felt, bouncing around etc and it's very reassuring to see that this was indeed the cause and it can (and will) be addressed.
Not sure. Front wheel just wasn't there any more. It was my second run along on that easier section, so perhaps I was a little too relaxed?did you endo there with too much front brake or did the music send you to sleep? Looks a nice course and next time you'll know what is in store and will be able to relax a bit more.
I didn't have that, but my friend, with more limited gearing, for sure did.One common situation off road is when you try and get going again at an incline
This is what I was talking about. Apart and on top of high tyre pressure I felt my high cadence is adding to bounciness and instability. Lessons taken, let's see how I can implement it next time...Also while riding off road, if you are in an easy gear, vigorous pedal input can lead to wheel slippage.
Me! Got caught out in it 1 km from home.
Personally, I would have nowhere to install these parts on my bike.So I went to the pawnshop today.
Are these good buys? Can you find prices like these in Tokyo?
Hey Joe, are houses really that small in Tokyo. I know apartments can get pretty small.Personally, I would have nowhere to install these parts on my bike.
Living in a tiny house in Tokyo, the most valuable commodity is space: For anything I buy I pretty much have to get rid of something else.
