Getting off the Saddle
I am having difficulty getting off the saddle and ride at a higher gear, not because I do not have the power to do it, but the motion of my foot on the paddle is not smooth and rather jerky.
Compared to road/tri bike, I can for example get off the seat and push hard in spinning class on stationary spin bikes, where I find my rhytm and do this quite smoothly.
My bike has Dura-Ace derailluers (front and back) and it has been just tuned up recently.
Do you guys have any suggestions for what I may be doing wrong?
