Too much Work?

I often tell my students that they are doing too much work on the bike. Do you feel like you put too much effort into riding? How could you ride around the street or track with less effort?

Re: Too much Work?

What is TOO MUCH? That has to be decided by each individual... I enjoy doing work on my bike myself, understanding the process, and what's improved. This is then tested out and reaffirmed when I ride. Being strictly track now, I think all the work done is warranted by not only making me better understand the machine I'm riding, but also in turn equating to me being a better rider with that understanding. The flip side could also be argued, were I able to afford a shop to do the work, I could focus specifically on my riding when at the track. Knowing I've done the work, re-checked my work, only gives me more confidence in the machine when riding... Interesting question proposed...

Nice R-Silaxin

I enjoy working I my bike just about as much as riding it. Gives me a better understanding of how everything works and if something needs adjusted or changed later, I have the confidence of knowing how to do so. Also my confidence level while riding is increased because I know I did the work and know for a fact that everything is tight and in working order. If a dealer did the work that's one more thing I have running through my head, did they out everything back correctly.

So to say you work on the bike too much, I don't think that's possible. Always something that can be done or learned every time you dig into the bike.

Plus it's still cold out here, so I need something to pass the time.

I don't think she is talking Mechanically working on your bike

I would say "work" translates into "effort" while riding is a better descriptive word.

Yeah, she's talking about how much physical effort you put into controlling the bike when you're riding.

I know I have this problem. I go out on the track and after 3-4 laps my legs are burning and I feel exhausted and I'm basically forced to relax cause I can't keep up the effort anymore - then I find I get faster and settle in and feel like I can go another 10 laps. I have yet to figure out how to relax right out of the gate though.
