That's what I thought. I ride 20 milers. I've ridden 25 twice and 30 once without problem. Rode 36 yesterday and was done at mile 28. I couldn't go on spinning my legs at all for the last 6 miles. I found I could mash along as I said in the August thread so I mashed my way to the end at probably 40 rpm.
