Getting faster

I'm getting faster. No doubt about it. One of the things I'm noticing with my new single speed is how on my toughest climbs what used to seem like the perfect gearing could be a bit taller.

I have a nice big turn that rises up on my way home and for the last few days I'll be about to charge up and notice I have a road bike on my rear wheel. I won't go down that easy. You're going to have to pass me on the uphill! Thing is, they never do.

I get out of the saddle add all the speed I can and then sit back and let my legs burn. Next thing you know I'm at the top and they're not on my wheel anymore. I'm off and flying.

I think I'm going to swap that 42 for a 44.
