    Bigger gear=slower acceleration. Simple as that. Smaller gear=faster acceleration. Of course your times are going to be slower in a bigger gear from a standing start for a 200 meter sprint because the first 5 seconds are what makes or breaks your time. Same with a kilo, first lap can make or break you.

    I think the problem could be that I'm not pulling hard enough on the pedal, relying too much on pushing.
