For several reasons, which I won't detail here, I like to pedal at a cadence of 95-100 rpm's. But I find that when I go into my drops it's very difficult for me to keep that up. It's much more comfortable and sustainable to lower my cadence to around 90 but I'm concerned that if I develop this kind of pattern my muscles will fatigue on longer rides. I have fairly large handlebars, stock on a 2000 Giant OCR 2, so when I go into the drops I really drop! Perhaps the significant change in body position demands that I pedal at a lower cadence, I don't know.
Any thoughts? Advice? Have a great day, and thanks in advance!
