Crabon bikes are fast!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Crabon bikes are fast!

This experiment is meaningless until we know which bike had valve caps:
Are Presta valve caps uncool or what?

What if one of his valve caps was that valve cap power meter that is 100.3% accurate? Just knowing your power can make you 2-3 mph faster.

That's single ended power, and is unreliable as all get out. Just being on a crabon bike is all one needs to crank it up a notch.

One can crank it up a notch without a power meter but you are going to need one if you want to dial it up to 400 watts.
