i'm an average cyclist -- two good rides a week and I seem to pass more often than not on uphills, and can stick with the pack on flats, but on any downhill, my bike just does not keep up.
I'm lighter than some of my riding partners, but my bike is heavier (I ride a cro-moly). I don't get what the problem is, maybe I'm just not pushing hard enough early in the downhill?!
I picked up new Mavic Open Pros - so the bearings are relatively new.
What else could be slowing me or my bike on the downhill....I'd prefer to blame the bike.
thanks for any input.
