This summer I’ve been teaching some new pedaling kung fu, thanks to BMX coach Greg Romero and a winter of study on my trainer and neighborhood hills.
My clients and I been focusing on developing high torque while maintaining perfect balance on steep terrain. Everyone one is pretty stoked, but we’ve been breaking chains. Just yesterday we snapped one and pulled one off an apparently worn cassette.
The good news: You’re more powerful than ever.
The bad news: You need a new chain.
