    Same (I think). I ride between high 60s and high 70s for gear inches. I'm also 140lbs which helps.

    300W FTP is pretty impressive.

    I did this with my first SS: took off the shifters/FD/derailleur cables, adjusted rear derailleur to be used as a tensioner. No other changes necessary, even with vertical drops. I think I was using...

    There's definitely a difference/dead spot in my pedal stroke when I go to a freewheel bike after riding fixed for a while. It actually feels like I'm stopped or backpedaling around the 12/6 oclock...

    Simplicity, beauty, efficiency, Sheldon, friends that also ride FG/SS.

    Also, short climbs (< 5 min) don't require gears.

    I run 85 front 95 rear max for 23s. No pinch flats at those pressures.

    For 32s on a wider rim I'll run as low as 35-45. Did this a fair bit through the winter - comfy.

    I've heard first-hand from other riders that Crank Bros pedals are good for about 3000-5000 miles - it seems that people who...

    I agree with all the replies saying uphill or into the wind is where you make the best gains. Oh, and of course, traffic lights if you know their timing.

    Through the winter I was on either 25c Gatorskins, 26x~2.0 studded tires, or Ritchey Speedmax Pro CX 32mms (they measure wider than that on my rims). The CX tires I had at around 30-60psi and loved,...

    Even on CX tires on the road? I find that's where it's the most "grabby" since there's not much of a contact patch between the CX tread and the road.

    Yes. I do find they tend to be a bit more grabby and that may take some getting used to especially on a road bike. And of course they are loud in the rain, which can be a feature if you want to be...

    Ah, forgot to mention I need a disc fork. I swapped to a BB7 upfront a few years back for the winter.
