How do you all hit such speeds? I can barely hit 18-20mph on a flat and it rarely goes over 24mph on a downhill decent with me pedaling. Frustrated

My main bike is a Trek XO-1 Cyclocross bike. I use this bike for everything though. I have a 7000 backup but let's just say the tires aren't even on the rims

Mine don't say anything. It kinda saddens me. But then again I rarely wear my shorts and jersey from work. An 11mi commute one way doesn't warrent the extra effort of changing
