Advice on riding with uprights
I like to ride with 2 bff a couple times a week. They hae normal roadbikes, as do I. When I take my Cannondale out, everthing is copasetic, however, when I take my SpeedMachine, there are issues.
First, is the issue of drafting. I can catch a great draft off them on the bent, but they can't get one off me. That creates a situation where neither wants to be the one that follows me. Next, is converstation. I have trouble hearing them down low like that.
I have been taking the roadbike for my rides lately, but I really love my bent and would take it if anyone can suggest some remedies for these issues....
