Ah, that explains it. I've never given recumbent a go, though I know a guy on my team who rides his regularly.

Sadly, I'm unable to determine the grade of the two/three hills I contend with, but they're fairly lengthy. These days I'm usually between 11 and 13 up them. I've had super good days where I've done them all on 20th! For me, due to some biomechanical oddities, I'm unable to stand and pedal in gears lower than about 12. This is because there isn't enough resistance on the downstroke and I have a hard time controlling the whole thing.
