So, I ride a 59cm Pake with a Velocity deep V rim with Soma everwear tires that have seen a few miles. I have yet to spin out, but I'm finding I'm having some trouble skidding, more so than I've had in the past with other bikes.
I'm thinking it could be the gear ratio,
which I'm not used to.
I was wondering, in an environment like Seattle, what would be a better ratio for me to try out? I don't mind putting some leg work into hills, but I also don't mind spinning a little more.
I would really just appreciate easier skidding.
(Like how I broke it up for easier skimming?)
