Hi. I have a 2010 Windsor Fens which rides great, I average 11mph through hills, BUT I top out at 25 mph pedaling fast in top gear.
My bike specs:
Crankset: Shimano 105 5600 triple for 30 speed, 50/39/30T
Cassette: 2010 Shimano 105 HG5600 10 Speed Cassette 12-25T
Chain: 2010 Shimano CN5600 HG 10 Speed
59cm frame for 6'0" rider
What do other people have as average and top speed? Is it conditioning, components, or both?
I would like to average over 30mph on flats, and be able to top out higher than that.
From what I read, the number of teeth in the chain ring is what will increase top speed? And that the crank arm length also, to a smaller extent?
