I've gotten a few hours in here and there. CTL is hovering in the mid 50s for the last week. TSB finally went positive after dropping to -85 when I just started back. mFTP is up to 298 and even...

Climbing is certainly easier to maintain a certain power. I think most people doing power tests will agree that it's easier to hit max wattage on a climb than on the flat.

Again, it's not weight. It's rolling resistance. That's what's important. That's the point of latex tubes.

Oh, lots. Lots and lots. There's a local cat 1 that's both a coach and a mechanic(!) that frequently shows up to race Zipp 404s with gatorskin tubulars. I asked him once why he had such a fast wheel...

It doesn't matter the speed. That's why CRR is so important. If affects you always.

Sure. You don't think that because you apparently don't know it. And you don't know what you don't know.

I'm confident the group gets it. I've seen multiple posters state something similar.

Sort of a reoccurring theme. Again, one you blissfully ignore.

If you're going to be wrong, I guess it's helpful to be polite.

But that's what I'm saying. The tires/tube comes MORE into play, regardless of speed.

That's why I said go with tires/tubes first over wheels for performance if you have to choose. If you don't,...

Gatorksins on disc wheels versus Conti 5000 TLs on Hed Ardennes.

I'd bet on the latter at 10 mph, 30 mph, 50 mph, etc.
