Last week a customer sought advice on why when he had started cycling using a road bike it was so much harder than his hybrid bike.
It was pretty clear that the difference in the gear ratios meant it was much harder to peddle especially on Yorkshire hills.
I swapped the cassette for a larger 11-32 tooth version and the customer reports to quote.
” Yes ride was much better with the changes, much more enjoyable. It was the right changes. Thank you.”
