How can I go faster?

I am not interested in speed per se, I am trying to keep up with someone riding a full size bike. Is it upgrading to 24" wheels? Or more gears?


  • The answer is get them a trike to slow them down!
  • Depends on your physical condition
  • dkananen (the one who asked the question): I've been able to get up all hills in first gear (though it's really pushing it). I'll have to talk with the dealer (West Michigan Bike & Fitness) about how much it would cost to change the gearing. By matching the cadence, do you mean how fast I have to pedal? 
  • So how fast is the bike moving ?
  • Also factor in the fact that your trike is undoubtedly much heavier than your friends df bike.
