I've tried my bike today on flat, and I rided almost without noticing any difference except for the highest gear, but I was much slower although my bike is now 600g lighter !!
But since that was my first ride and the whole geometry of the bike is not the same as before, I think that things may come better soon enough. My riding position is not fitted correctly (need to fix seat position + unappropriate handlebar), so I am hoping that eventually my speed would increase
Ofcourse I have to do some serious climbing to see how hard actually it will be, but according from today's experience I might even survive the suffering !!
Thanks for the gear computers, really cool stuff
P.S.: I ride around 4.000 k every year, but I did also short/middle distance triathlons in recent years (not good results, believe me
), my average cadence is approx. 80-90, and on the 45k flats (only 300m elevation) my best average speed so far was 34 km/h - longer distances usually 30, depends on elevations !!!
