    Bartali's comments about gearing are, uhm, interesting.

    Nice video, Alienator.

    That person remind me of me climbing (albeit of me on less steep gradients/img/vbsmilies/smilies/frown.gif)

    It's likely a fair number of riders on that climb think, "I need a 32T cog."

    Even with my 30/39/52x11-28, there have been a couple times that 30x28 didn't feel low enough (mainly when it's a long ride and my legs are already toast).
