Why are bents said to be slower up hills?
Is it just because you canít stand up? Myself I never do. When I started riding again I was 270# but I was always on my feet and I could walk for miles a day. All I found standing up was I would get tired faster. I had to get in a larger gear or I would peddle too fast. It was less work going in the lowest gear my racing bike had then standing.
So will my bent be slower for me up hills?
