Spinning Circles with Kevin Aiello – Pedal More Efficiently
Like a lot of jobs mine has perks. Lately one of those has been spending a lot of time in the shop and on the trail with Kevin Aiello from SoCalSpeedClinics.com. As I’ve mentioned Kevin blows me away with his MTB coaching aptitude. He sees something, gives you something to think about and you’re riding better. Kevin’s known for his DH and Free Ride skills. You know if you ask questions about cornering, steeps, chunk, jumping, etc he’s got you covered. So I tried to throw him for a loop with something less, ah, enduro I suppose. Help me pedal more efficiently.
We were chatting about my continual flats versus clipless inner dialogue. (which is coming as a write up soon) I mentioned I never felt really efficient on clipless (which was oft confirmed by my brother and Joe making fun of it) so maybe flats weren’t hurting me uphill. Kevin challenged my thinking on it.
