It didn't feel any different, cadence wise. My Garmin bears that out with a max of 137, which is generally where I am during intervals.
It did feel weird when I first started riding, but at the end of an hour and a half it felt fine.
Why couldn't this have come up at the beginning of the season?
Seriously though, thanks for linking the article. Turns out I've been doing it wrong all this time...
