    That's interesting. The Sram 11-28 has much better coverage in the 19-25 mph range. But it's not as good in the 15-19 mph range on the 50 chainring. Under 18 mph, the 34 chainring looks good.

    I got these REI glove liners to wear under some heavier gloves when it gets quite cold.

    But they are thin enough to wear under my fingerless gloves. That works great down to about 50F. They are...

    All gps software uses smoothing. My Garmin 705 records once a second, and is accurate enough to show which side of the road I was on. But even so, there's "jitter" in recordings, and the different...

    It's Mike Sherman's Gear Calculator. It's great, all the charts change on the fly as you try different gears or cadences. I've clipped these charts and posted them many times on other threads.

    I have 11-speed 11-28 that came with the bike. At about 19-20 mph, I'm shifting up and down to find the right gear. It's annoying. But I need the 28 cog on the steep hills.

    I'd rather have a 12-28...

    I can't hook a tire lever over a spoke. The tire bead is way too tight. If I hook one, I can't get the second lever under the bead. So I just flip two levers at the same time to remove a tire.

    If your knees are sore, you want to stay at a higher cadence, with light force on the pedals. Keep shifting to an easier gear until you get to the point where it feels like no resistance at all,...

    Riders usually count pedal strokes instead of using a chart. I used to count the right pedal for 20 seconds, then multiply by 3. This only works for a steady effort on flat ground, but it's good...

    At my preferred 90 rpm, the 15-15 is 23.5 mph, and the 15-14 is 25.2 mph.

    I'm more at a range of 50-19, 18.6 mph, to 50-17, 20.8 mph. ...
