What gears does one use in a pace line.
Some riders advice is the middle chainring and higher end of the rear cluster. My group can be faster than me. Often struggle to keep up, particularily on the longer hills. What is the choice of most riders.
It is just my impression by pushing higher gears, i get more speed. Most seem to say higher gears takes more energy. Seems to me, I gear down, I slow down with a similiar physical effort.
