    I have a divergent opinion: cross-chaining is not a big deal. Nothing is gonna happen if you're big/big or small/small. Don't worry about, and use all the gear you've got to do the most work you...

    I think the core of this is oversimplified, inaccurate and extreme.

    Pros are not turning 100rpm+ most of the time. When they are, they're not doing it save energy, but to produce watts. Turning...

    Hmm, I can accept that. Does "it's easier to produce more power at higher rpms than lower RPMs" work for you?

    i was assuming that since we are talking about bike riding and training at higher...

    MMP being what? And W'?

    I guess what I was asking for was more specificity as to what those "specific efforts to exhaust W'" would be according to Coggan *if* a 20 in effort is inherently...

    I'm pretty sure that's why he used the phrase "quite likely," in order to express absence of absolute certainty.

    Yes, or put another way, Asgelle is conflating gross metabolic efficency with efficient high-power production.

    The former condition does suggest that lower cadences and corresponding low power...

    So what does Coggan think is a good "critical power test"?

    I mean, he says in "seven deadly sins" that critical power testing and analysis is one of the best ways to estimate FTP (top 3, in...

    Transonic w/ direct mount brakes looks like the hot ticket to me, as I'd prefer the more modern aero frame, and then to just upgrade components as desired. Component group is a small piece of the...

    I have a Lemond B.A. from '02, which shares the same geometry and design of the Zurich, but with an 853 tubed front triangle and 525 tubed stays.

    I have serious concerns that one of those would...

    I think you get this, but to be clear, my point was that lightening the Breezer doesn't make sense to me, primarily because the weight that's keeping it from being sub-19lbs is in the frame, as my...

    A Venturi in the M/L size (similar to a tradtional 57cm) with a typical full Ultegra 11spd build (incl. wheels) is 20lb with pedals, and would cost about $1.8k as a complete bike.

    The Ultremo ZX is a hot tire, too!

    I've not used them, but I use the Schwalbe One currently, and it's damn fine.

    Oh, that's cool to know re: Turbo Cotton. Spesh really seem to be on a tear with their road tires, huh? I gotta try some of these new ones out!

    what do think about your TCs?

    Correct, but it impacts how much you have in reserve when it's time to empty the bank. But hey, if you don't empty the bank, who cares, right? Some of us ride hard.

    Also, Yksion Grip-/Power-link are F/R specific models of same tire.

    Don't neglect to consider the Panaracer Race Type A Evo II, either. It's really a light, fast tire, and was recently on sale at...

    The Turbo Cotton is, I believe, an out-of-production Specialized tire. Their new Turbo and SWorks Turbo are supposed to be pretty amazing. One of the fast kids in my club rides SWorks version and...

    I dunno...latex is fast and feels good, so why not? Cost? Leak-down? Could be issues, but for a fast/event wheelset, latex tubes make a lot of sense to me.

    I had a pair of GP4ks years ago, and didn't like the feel, which I'd describe as dead, perhaps dead-warmed-over. I moved to the GPAttack/Force combo, which I also didn't like for the feel. In...

    I wouldn't mess with the seatpost height, presuming it was set correctly in the first place.

    Bouncing in the saddle at high RPM is not anyone's method of setting initial seat height, and I don't...
