Default Re: Will shift kit help with strong headwinds?

Shift kit will definitely keep you in the power band. Unless you've got a single speed rear hub, lol.

I've got 7 gears to play with, going into wind 3rd or 4th... coming back with the wind 7th, all at same engine rpm :P Same with towing or bastid hills, 1st, 2nd

A 'shield would be more for comfort than extra speed wouldn't it? Depends on the shape of it I guess, eh?
