    No. I'm right alone. I never said they were independent. I just said they were different countries. And, yes, I mentioned the failed independence vote as well.

    Wind, I agree. I'm assuming everything else is constant as it makes no sense to compare Billy on a road bike in a velodrome to Jim on a fat bike climbing a mountain. :)

    It's not a wash. You burn (slightly to a lot) more calories going (slightly to a lot) faster per mile. As DelCrossV said, the resistance force will always be bigger the faster you go.

    I believe (and have anecdotal but don't have scientific evidence to back it up) that clipping in means you are less likely to hurt knees and ankles in a fall for exactly this reason.

    As long as we've gone a bit amiss, I'll point out that I'd love to see a Silvio V1.x get the F40 treatment. That would be a fast bike!

    Cat ears should help with wind noise. For most people I'd never suggest this, but regular ear plugs that block out most noise might work for you. For most people the loss of audio feedback is a bad...
