I had my first real foray in the Don Valley System(Toronto) with my new bike (Kula Deluxe) and clipless pedals (Time Attack). Had quite a very hard time on some up hills that wiped me out pretty nicely... stuck in my pedals, upside down.... Three good wipeouts , with no injuries. I seem OK, but can imagine some worst case scenarios that would have been BAD. Just wondering how people climb steep stuff, clipped in, when you are struggling to keep it pointed straight?
Bike worked very well in terms of handling, ride and braking. I also had a chain jam up a couple of times when dropping into the smallest chainwheel. That felt worse than a fall. Should I just take it in to get the drivetrain checked? It has a combo of SRAM X-9, XT front with SRAM X9 shifters. Tips on this appreciated and pedal strategies appreciated.
