11/28 Cassette

Ahh yeah! Finally installed my Shimano Ultegra 11/28 rear cassette! I used to have an 11/25. If you don’t know what it is, it’s the rear gears for my bike, and the numbers indicate how many teeth in the low and top gears. I’ve had it for a few weeks now but never had a chance to put it on my bike because I didn’t have the correct tools. I wish I had this going up Piuma the other week, but I can’t wait to give this a try on those hills in Westlake! I wonder what the extra 3 teeth will help me, but I do know for sure, on some hills we’ve faced, I sure was wishing there were just a little bit more when I was climbing!

    OMG the 11/28 is amazing!!!! I put switched out my 11/25 for an 11/28 in May, and now I love going up Mt. Diablo! OK, maybe I don’t love it, but it is not longer torture!

    Yes!! It was a life changer for me! I think it’s one of those unmentioned secrets in training…
