I have a situation, just want to hear some input from more experienced cyclist.
I have my clipless, i was riding fast on a flat road, and then i encounter a uphill. I was powering through without problem. But suddenly, there is a stop light and forces me to stop suddenly. I forgot to downshift, so i'm still stuck on a high gear. I'm on my clipless, so my left leg does really get me much power until i "clipped" onto the clipless ( i generally takes about 2+ pedal to fully gotten my clipless to "clip" in). With just my right leg giving me power for half a padel, it doesn't give me any speed to go on, and i'm stuck without moving. So what should i do?
This happened to me once, and at the end, i have to walk my bike to aside and "manually" downshift by physically switching the chain to a low gear. I don't have super good balance especially when i'm slow or not moving, so i can't wait until i'm "clipped" before start moving forward.
What do you guys do in this situation?
