Since I've been riding Ruby Roubaix, I've noticed I stick pretty much to the middle ring. Occasionally, if ther'es a long enough hill, I might pop down to the small ring. But rarely have I ridden in the big ring. Do most roadies spend a lot of time in the big ring? Am I missing something? I keep meaning to give it some pedal time, but I keep forgetting. Maybe tomorrow. Meantime, should I be riding most of the time on the big ring to maximize my experience?
The rings are 50-39-30, btw. 12-27 on the back.
