That would imply a CdA in the range of .3 on a 1990's non-aero Bianchi with 32 spoke wheels and Gatorskins and a messenger bag.

So, unless you're a midget, no.

No, no, I don't think I have exceptional math skills. I think the only thing that's evident is my math skills (modest though they are) are superior to yours. But I'm pleased that you've recanted and...

Well, I can see how you've averaged 9 posts a day for 13 years. You must have a lot of time to post since riding at any cadence whatsoever hurts your knees.

Ah, so you're saying that *both* decreasing and increasing your cadence hurts your knees? What's your magic cadence that you have to hold constant in order to avoid knee pain? That must be very...

Ah, so when climbing a steep hill in a given gear ratio (like, your lowest), you're saying you (and many others?) increase your cadence in order to avoid knee pain? My goodness gracious.

When climbing or riding on the flat, speed decreases with decreased cadence (in any given gear ratio). Power decreases with decreased speed. Crank torque and pedal force are almost constant with...

Oh, I wasn't asking why the cadence would decrease on the inside line. I was asking why decreased cadence is a problem. You also think it's a problem to be avoided. So perhaps you can explain where...

Perhaps not, but we all experience the same physics. In the situation you described, why would decreasing cadence be a problem?

Why would having cadence drop even further be a problem in that particular situation?

I'm about an mph slower than I was a decade ago. I'd pay in the ballpark of a couple of thousand to turn that part of the clock back. (My youngest is 9, and I changed jobs a bit after that -- I...

They could, but that's not the only way to reduce injuries. What a helmet should do is manage the deceleration your brain experiences, as well as dissipate some of the puncturing point forces. That...
