just too powerful :-)
Yep, that must be it.
Seriously though, what do you do about it? I found I had to adopt an uncomfortable sort of riding position where I hung back off the handlebars over the back wheel just to get up the hill. I don't think I have ever seen 'proper' cyclists doing that...
Pantani used to do that,
are you standing or sitting ?
sitting will pretty much eliminate it.
gearing is the other element, higher gearing will allow you a higher cadence, lower torque for same power ( and allow you to sit on steeper gradients)
Yeah too steep to sit so probably need some different gearing really.
If you can't get a higher gear then what you did was right mate! Getting up Rowsleybar in the grease is an nightmare if u can't get a high gear so it's just a case of getting as much weight over the rear wheel as poss!
just don't flip it over backwards !!
Basically you are just running on a bike not cycling.
