...I have two bikes with triple chainring cranks, where the only Biopace ring is the granny ring. It does feel funny at first, and I don't think I could spin it either. But I find that section of the pedal stroke where it feels like resistance drops to zero to be quite a good assist going up a steeper hill with a load on the back. I like it now, but not to the point where I'm swapping out the rest of the bikes. This one is set up that way, and it works very well for me (once I got used to it after a couple of rides.)
