Here I am trying to keep a 70ish cadence but at 14% gradient running a compact 50-34 crankset and 11-32 cassette I was only able to keep my cadence at 60ish without having to increase my power over 270 watts. I am aiming to keep my maximum power for vEveresting to 255 for no longer than 1 – 2 minute segments.
