Just wanted to get a few thoughts on mtb climbs, is it me or does anyone ever feel like they have reasonable fitness but for some reason on climbs feel that in actual fact they have no fitness?
When I attack any climb the following symptoms occur
- knackered after about 5 minutes
- I always drift up to the grannyring and usually stay there still knackered
- frequent dismounting
- feeling of going backwards on really steep stuff, gravity is pulling me back but I'm pedalling my bike forwards.
