I did a few steep climbs yesterday on damp surfaces, these were country lanes through wooded areas ,so the surfaces would have been a little greasy. On a few occasions when I got out of the saddle i got pretty bad wheel spin. Both the other guys I was riding with, didnt experience this. Im using vittoria zaffiro tyres which are an entry level tyre, is this where my problem is?
