Hey guys, I had to stop quite quickly while riding yesterday and didn't have time to change down gears. I tried to click down once I'd stopped and was surprised that it didn't click down more than once when I had stopped as I was sure I was in 3rd or 4th gear. Needless to say, when I went to take off I stalled as I was still in gear other than first. This has happened a couple of times and so when I stopped yesterday I tried to stomp down gears with a bit more force to no avail...anyone know what causes this - would it be a dirty oil issue or something for the mechanic to look at during the next service? I've read that it's always best to use a combo of brakes and engine braking to slow down. If you don't have a huge distance within which to brake, is it preferable to use your brakes or your engine braking as your main option? Thanks again as always! edit: various typos!
