I recently bought a new (to me) road bike. This bike has a Bontrager Race Lite Triple crank. I really like the bike but not the crank. It has one annoying problem that I have not encountered with my other road bike, that also has a triple crank (Shimano 105). To shift from the middle ring to the large ring I must pause pedaling.
I don't have to pause pedaling on my other road bike, nor on any of the bikes I have rented. It is pretty common to have to reduce pedal pressure; but not pause entirely. Why this one?
After I bought the bike I had a LBS go through it and set it up. They have rechecked the bike and claim that is normal and that I just don't know how to ride it.
What can I do about the problem other than live with it?
