Yeah I asked a teacher to go with us today, and she said she couldn't
because she had class all week, so I said: "ok, why don't you call me
when you have no class.":p
(Thats' from an old Rodney Dangerfield movie: "back to school".)

Aliso ride 10.3.08

Post by mtnjeff » Wed, 08 Oct 2008 07:58:57

I have started a couple of threads asking about riding uphill but didn't
know how to compare the difficulty of the hills I had attempted to ride.
I know Jamey can ride up Cholla but can all of you? I find it
challenging, but doable to ride from the top of Cholla to the top of
Rock-it - anything steeper and I am walking. If you can all ride much
steeper trails how long did it take you to "get it".

It takes both endurance and skill and I don't know which it takes more
of. The longer the cranks usually the easier it is to climb up steep
sections. I currently use 165's and they seem to work great. I'll
eventually switch to 150's one of these days...

I have now climbed Cholla 3 times with no dismounts and Manthis once
with no dismounts (and on my first try!). I was pretty stoked about
that. As for technique, I just go slow and steady. If it's really steep
you kind of have to do a half a revolution, stop and re-position, then
do another half a revolution, stop and re-position, etc. But if you can
just keep cranking up it then it's a lot less effort as you use the
momentum to keep you going. Then of course if it's rocky, you might have
to jump here and there to get up. Hope that helps. Besides that it's
just practice practice practice!!

Aliso ride 10.3.08

Post by MuniAddic » Thu, 09 Oct 2008 01:53:43

I think I have the technique to make the same climbs, and I'm very
proficient at half revs and repositioning and all that. And I also have
good stamina and lung capacity. And a big factor is how you're feeling
on a particular day and how much hard riding you may have done in the
days just prior.

I also believe that age is a factor, and a very experienced rider in
there 20's is just simply going to have an edge over someone nearly 53,
no matter how fit that older person might be. Another factor is also my
MUni setup. Instead of 165mm like Jamey, I have 150mm cranks and a LM
rim, so not only do I have less leverage for the steep climbs, but a
heavier rig to do it on.

So, here's my idea. I will do this *same* ride again with you guys, but
this time I'll use my Orange '05 KH MUni with the standard rim and 165mm
cranks.  I may have better results. With this similar type setup, I was
able to make it all the way up one of the very steepest sections, (I
dubbed "heart attack hill") leading up to the beginning of Mathis, while
others could not. And that was over a year ago. Plus, I won't do a 15
mile coker ride, and a 9+ mile MUni ride just prior, like last time,
lol! I'm fired up to try this again!:D
