I just don’t see myself at their level.

But I knew the pros were big propents of spinning fast.

I wouldn’t have thought that. He said it will be easier on my knees and muscles too.

Maybe I misunderstood the chart he was showing me then. Or I was gleaning the wrong data off from it. Regardless. He showed me that that my current averages on the bianchi with the gear ratio’s I use are a cadence of about 60. He said shift down 1 or 2 and pedal faster. I will gain. I did. He was right.

i’ll have to time it when i’m on my next nice flat ride and use the stopwatch feature and double check mine.

LSR will appreciate that. 120-130 sounds very high... the pros do 100-110 it seems. Google says lance armstrong rode at 110.
@ Jetlink « Sat 8:21:06 pm »
He suggested in the 120-130 range.
@ Jetlink « Sat 8:20:36 pm »
Sounds like my normal cadence is about 60.
@ ~Z~ « Sat 8:18:51 pm »
right, when we were riding on Thurs, I definitely noticed I’m at a higher cadence than you were. I try for just over 80rpm, so a little more than 1 cycle per second.
@ Jetlink « Sat 8:12:28 pm »
I tried it today. It seemed to work. But he was suggesting a much faster cadence than I could get to today. But still it seemed to help.
@ Jetlink « Sat 8:11:47 pm »
He suggested a lower gear ratio and a faster cadence.
@ Jetlink « Sat 8:11:11 pm »
I was looking for a higher gear ratio..
