I've been riding up some steep hills in San Diego,
and its been really frustrating as the rear derailleur wants to bump up a gear.
I've been learning how to time the "self-shifting" and ride with one hand to push the shifter down,
but its just difficult to get any power on it.
(its the downtube shifter style)
Any hints at what to do?
The derailleur is adjusted perfect,
and i've cleaned the shifter/bushings too.
