"Very droll!. Surely to be negatively geared the gearing needs to be swapped around - big cogs on the back wheel and derailleur on the pedal shaft. At least you could write off any improvements."

"Campy or Shimano? Do wider tyres help you negatively gear faster but more comfortably? What is the optimum front gear ratios to maximize your benefit, and does it matter if riding on the flat or hills? Is there a Strava segment for this?"

Help with Bicycle Gearing (Negatively)

I’m planning to negatively gear my bicycle.If I get some backwards cranks and pedals, can I negatively gear my bicycle?I read this article about it:Negative gearing is a practice whereby a cyclist borrows money to acquire a second (3rd, 4th, etc) transport-producing investment bike and expects the gross transport generated by the investment to be less than the cost of owning, maintaining and managing the bike, ie a loss. How can this be?By negatively gearing the bicycle!You back-pedal in a lazy…See More

Hi,

I put two and two together listening to your Three D show yesterday and thought you might be a cyclist and AC member. You're not the only Three D broadcaster (or broadcasting industry member) on here either! Michael from Untouchable Sound and the inimitable Suzy Ramone of course.

Great show, both of them, you did yesterday.

Cheers

Gus

I'm back at WEA doing Italian now, how about you?

Cheers,

Dave
