Did 30min at 330w on a local FS road climb. Had more in the tank. The gravel surface has a lot of braking bumps, which made me feel like I was pedaling squares. Weight at 141 today.

So, by tapping to shift, you might also be tapping your brakes?

That seems like a very strange way to set up a bike, but, what do I know.

Why would a brake lever have Di2 buttons?

Or, what do brake levers have to do with shifters?

If there was a bar that was compatible with Di2, I'd expect a subsidiary of Shimano to make it.

After weeks of terrible weather, there should be a break in the clouds, wind, snow and rain.

I saw a bike check done on most of a dozen bikes at the TDU and most were half a kilo over the limit, if not more. Granted, this was by a member of the media, but still.

It's interesting that his ban ends four days after track Worlds. And, he hasn't raced any World Cups.

However, he's still ranked 25th in the UCI's track Omnium. There are 18 slots for the omnium,...

Get out of here with science.

It should be noted that Sir Bradley Wiggins didn't use overshoes during his Hour Record ride.

Nor do British team pursuit squad.

Keep in mind, that is for the total SYSTEM. Bars, stem, seatpost, wheels, frame.

How much of that could you get from a normal, "round" tubed frame with a set of aero handlebars and 50-60mm wheels?...

As has already been said by others, an aero handlebar and aero wheels are going to make far more difference than an aero frame.
