Change your sheeting system to a leverarm without gear (Ernst, help me with the translation here: nich ausgevechselt). You will loose friction and gain power. The function is highly improved. With the leverarm-system I managed to come from behind on a 1-metre (using ordinary sheeting). So big is the gain.
Mmmmh. “Nicht ausgewechselt” Simply means ‘not exchanged’ if you translate it directly. But “Without gear not exchanged” is probably not what you want to say, is it? [:-boggled]
