😕 not happy with how many breaks I had to take on the climbs today.
Yes, this particular route is a bit brutal and sure, I’ve cycled ever day the past three days but none of them were long or particularly strenuous. I’ve lost so much stamina through and in the pause after the Covid infection in September last year.
Don’t get me wrong, the pause was necessary and sensible to reduce the chances of damaging my heart but it’s still disappointing and demotivating.
Had the Rotor Aldhu 48/32 crankset combined with the GRX group set on the bike for a while but ever so often, I get a crunching shift from the small ring into the big ring. Shimano designed GRX with a different chain line and I’ve just gone back to the GRX crankset to see if this was the cause. 🚲
