I think we've all seen the plots of pedal force for time trialists which have been frequently posted here, sorry though as I was not a poster of same, I don't have a link. In any case, these plots...

Cadence change is about crank inertial load, the affect of which is to change muscle recruitment, which changes because while climbing, pedal force becomes more spread out and thus cadence will be...
