I’m a pretty lightweight cyclist- 130 lbs (59 kg). We all know that tire pressure is dependent on rider/bicycle weight. Are there other special considerations, either from a equipment or technique standpoint, that a lighter-than-average cyclist might take to improve their experience?
Some ideas I have that may or may not be true:
-Smaller disc brake rotors (cuts weight, because less braking power is needed)
-Wheels with shallower rims (with less inertia, lighter riders are more susceptible to getting blown by crosswinds)
-Narrower handlebars (for narrower shoulders)
-More care on gravel (less weight, less traction)
-Easier gear ratios (less muscle mass, less torque)
-General weight-weeny-ness (since the bike carries a relatively higher proportion of the weight of the overall system)
Any other ideas? Feel free to debunk any of these ideas!
