I had an old hardrock of that vintage. I loved it as a commuter! When the frame broke I replaced it with an LHT. Sure, the LHT is a step up, but I was surprised how similar the two were. The...

That's not a lot, but rear tires wear faster. Buy a new tire. Put the new one on the front, and move your old front tire to the rear.

It's not surprising to me that the same personality type that is spurred on to hurtle down narrow mountain roads at the hairy edge of control just to beat the other guy is also inclined to take a...

Kurt, I think it effectively is a curtate cycloid if instead of using the wheel's actual diameter for the large radius you use its effective diameter. In other words, calculate how far the bike...

Ok, hamster's stair stepper did it for me. I can see now that the distance would be less than the sum of these two. So this is solvable for a fixed gear, but I think there isn't one answer for a...

Only true if the bicycle is single speed, fixed gear. Or if you pedal continuously, never shifting gears, and never coasting.

I'm not convinced. At any rate, the path traveled is not a regular pattern, so I don't think the "curate cycloid" solution works. A 78 rpm average doesn't mean that the pedals are turning steadily...

I don't think you need to worry about the "curate cycloid". Treat the distance your feet move in reference to the bottom bracket as one problem, and the distance the bike moves as another. Then add...

I've done a sprint triathlon for the last 4 years (one a year, the only "racing" I do) on a Felt z90, which is lower down the line than the z65. It works fine, and I can get a deep enough drop...

He's not suggesting Strava be abolished. He's just suggesting that downhill KOM's and KOM's through high traffic areas are a bad idea. That's pretty sensible.

He sounds completely reasonable to me. He's not one-sidedly slamming Strava. His suggestions not to include descents or routes through urban areas seems pretty sensible.
