I downshift because I can't generate enough torque.
For the front rings, this is only when I'm climbing.
That means as often as not, when I go to downshift, I've already got the chain tensed up because I'm putting torque on the crank.
Front derailleurs us the force of the spring to downshift and the force of the shifter to move to the higher ring.
The tension on the spring isn't enough sometimes.
Yes, I should think ahead more.
Now I can easily put more pressure on the shifter up shifting, when there is no torque, than that little spring can when I need the power.
So explain this backwards ass shit to me!

New /tram/ general, panoramic edition.
Does your city have tram lines that run through beautiful places?
Do you know any scenic tram lines, past or present?
Cable cars, funiculars, and similar are welcome too.
We have an historic tram line, with original vehicles from 1906 running on the original line from 1901, that runs 1.3km up a hill, and from there a funicular goes all the way to the top where there's a small amusement park. The most awesome part is the open tram, which runs in summer. Pic related.
