No, really, I need help. Well, with climbing that is.
Now, I have for quite a long while just sat in the saddle and spun hills out, admitidly mostly in granny gears. Now my egs are a bit strong I want to try and get out of the saddle a bit more. Trouble is, I have trouble staying up for more than a couple of seconds.
So, other than lots of practise, is there any tips anyone can kindly give me?
I am thinking at the moment that part of the problem is gear choice and I am choosing a gear that is too low so my weight just goes straight down through the pedal stroke rather than meeting resistance and power going to the wheel.
Balance wise it also feels a lot harder. I know when climbing out of the saddle a certain amount of weaving is necessary but....how much is too much? and yes I realised this is a hard question to answer.
Thanks in advance.
