    262w. 25.1 mph. Mid size but doesn't look light.
    270w. 25.4 mph. Mid size....

    My best is 587w for a minute so I couldn't do it for even 60s.

    My best also came when I did two massive accelerations trying to stay in contention for a race. I failed, blowing up with 2 turns to...

    Interesting on the club thing.

    If Gila sounds appealing to you then you can realistically wait until next year to do it.

    There's a local rider that is a good, strong rider. His biggest skill was knowing, somehow, how to ride in...

    I've also heard a while ago, in terms of the cost thing, that Shimano will give "points" to teams (not sure of actual term). So a Di2 drivetrain might be 100 points (I'm totally making up the...

    I'm all for progress with electronics, aero stuff, etc. Ultimately if the riders are in some kind of similar position on the bike, if they have a chain, then I'm probably for it. I didn't like the...

    Sort of relevant. I just saw an article that said that no ProTour teams on SRAM for next year. Is that relevant to the typical amateur racer? Wondering out loud.

    If a frame is missing a fork there's got to be a reason, and it's probably because the fork is in pieces. Just a guess, but that would be my assumption (and I know what assuming does).

    Yes and no.

    The power required to turn the wheel over at a particular speed at a particular resistance is independent of cadence. Meaning on a trainer you should use mph only for power comparison....
