Hi everyone,

I know that cadence is theactualrotational speed of the cranks measured in RPM.

However, I was wondering if there was a term to describe a similar but related concept. For each speed of the wheel, and each gear, there is minimum cadence that is required in order to engage the cranks (the minimum cadence so that you are not free pedaling). Is there a technical term cyclists use to describe this specific value?

Thanks in advance!!
