I do not have Sterzo functionality, but have been hit with a few sticky situations on meetup rides with the no drop function going. I get stuck on the slower riders and cannot get past them. I have pushed 2-3 times the w/kg to no avail, and also less than half with out coming unstuck.
Today, someone in the group took a screen video of me doing full on zigzag and circles around riders I was stuck to, even though from my viewpoint, I was not doing anything like that. Quite comical, and I would never, ever ride with myself if I rode like that IRL.
If a gap developed, all the riders around me except my ‘stuck to’ would get pulled up. The two of us would stay back. I had to stop completely to get unstuck, then the rider I was stuck to would get sprung back up to the group. I’d get going again, catch back up only to get stuck again.
In a group of 40 or so, there were three riders in particular.
Once the group shrunk to 10 of closer ability, and the ones I was sticking to dropped out, there did not seem to be an issue.
Any help/guidance would be appreciated.
