    Gord Singleton rode a 10:58 F200 in 1980 on a round tube frame with box rim wheels. Ride what you got. Upgrade when stuff gets worn out. Your equipment isn't what's holding you back.

    I think it would've been funny if Carleton had just thrown some random watt and weight numbers and it worked out that the 300lb guy had a higher watts/lb ratio. Why do you have to be so smart?
