Re: overpropped vs underpropped

Hi...
Remember me?
I am not a mechanical engineer, but i am an engineer...

My situation seems like... lets go with the ten speed bike..

The bike rider should select gear 3 for overall optimum match to his legs over all terain.

Me being 240 rpm below target seems like I am in gear 3.1 on the ten speed bike.
Not in gear 10 and way overpropped.

Am I correct mechanical engineers?
