Shouldn't be a problem if you stick to the path. Very nice! It's something I have heard of and want to do in the future!

Hi all, Iam new to cycling... Pardon me for asking a noob question... I realise my speed is v slow... Other ppl (on road bikes) paddle once already overtaken me by a few ten's of metres... My average speed is only around 9.5kph... I am a buibui riding a 20" Aleoca Foldable bike... So is it the bike issue or just my poor fitness level? And to ride on average 2 hours per trip, my bum feels sore... Especially the tailbone..... So changing to answer bike or bigger saddle helps?

Thanks!

Mechanical better than Di2.

Get an Ultegra Mechanical. Differences to D.A are minimal. Only slightly heavier. (Google it).

But a big difference in price.

Reason for not choosing Di2 is simply you don;'t want to get caught out just before a ride, forgetting to charge your battery!

Mechnical is good enough for 99% of cyclists, even pro cyclists!
