    I did a 30 min TT test about a month ago and got LT 162. I know that I can go for hours at 150-155 and I burn out after about 10 min at 170. So 162 sounds about right.
    To my mind, 85% of 162 is low...

    You are mostly correct, but some of your conclusions are inaccurate. Here is the key fact that your theory can't account for. Yes, our ancestors were hunter/gatherers. Strong emphasis on "gatherers"...

    Average speed is an utterly useless indicator, because of hills and wind. Riding on a bicycle, you feel every hill even if you never noticed that it was there before. A measly 2% grade that you'd...

    Yes, it is reasonable, and it is authoritative, all I'm saying is that it has a rather specific focus.

    I did a quick scan through Chapter 8 "Training Year". By my count, it uses the phrase "Time...

    Aha! You are absolutely right. Now that you mentioned it, I can see in Google that it is a DynaSys rear derailleur, and those have different shift ratios from the rest of the Shimano family. Thanks!...
