NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY, I can't leave it in the small ring. Even on a pancake flat ride, with goalometer pegged to easy... eventually... out of habit?... my chain magically jumps to big.
Take tonight, on the heels of the heinous Hardman Classic followed by a peppy Market Ride and chased by an attempt at tempo but turned let's do this! glorious mtb sesh...
You'd think, No prob. . You'd think i'd just roll along. Sure I'd run all over that rear cassette (why do we say rear, when there's only one place it could be?).
A whiff of tailwind, a -.5% grade, and I was in the big.
Is it just me?
Am I the only one with zero ability to resist the lusty call of the big ring?
It's just a small ring after all... who needs it?
