I saw the GMR time trial video. Good raw footage at the end
I used to feel the same way about hearing myself on climbs years ago, and I would listen to my music in both ears to drown it out some, but it doesn't bother me anymore. Plus there's the safety aspect as well. I now (usually) only listen in my right ear so the left one is free to hear traffic. Listening to my breathing on video after the ride is hilarious!
I can't wait until this weight's almost gone. There is a climb here that has grades up to 20% and it would make for a great video! I'm not touching that one until I'm down another 30 pounds.
