Shifting during a turn

3008 Views 12 Replies 9 Participants Last post by
Is it good/bad/depends to be shifting (up) while IN a turn? I find myself doing it periodically when I went into the turn on the high range of my current gear and I want to pull out of the turn strong. So far it hasn't been an issue for my bike but I'm curious if this is something that could cause me problems in the future if I make it a habit or do it at higher than normal speeds?

I think it depends on what type of turn it is. If it's a mellow turn then I'll shift. If it's tight I'll downshift before I enter the turn so I have plenty for when I exit. I don't know if this is right but that's what I've been doing.
