Episode Two of “Ask the Gravel Cyclist Crew a Question”, can be seen below.
Questions in this episode:
- My stock wheelset is heavy. It’s great on flat roads but very slow when the road tilts uphill. What’s a good pair of wheels that won’t drain my kid’s college fund?
In addition to the suggestions in the video, some good wheels to consider:(a) Hunt 4 Season Gravel Disc(c) Clement Ushuaia
- If I wanted to do a race with “some gravel patches”, but stick with using road tires – 25mm wide, etc – what tire pressure should I run and what can I do to prepare my bike?
- What gears are you using in general? In particular, details about the crank and cassette when there is a lot of elevation change.
- How is it that K-Dogg (61yo member of Team Gravel Cyclist) can ride so fast uphill, yet so slowly downhill? Please explain the mathematics and physics of gaining time uphill versus downhill.
