All that notwithstanding, whenever I've been doing structured workouts on a trainer in Erg Mode, I generally find it easier to put out higher power at higher cadence - >100 - rather than a lower cadence in the 80s. In the 80s, I find myself bogging down and have difficulty maintaining that power and cadence.

Contrariwise, when I'm doing a longer climb of >6%, I find myself gravitating toward the mid-80s, even if I have gears that allow a higher cadence.

So, there's that.
