Don't feel too bad. The Signature series spanned a broad range of models for pro level down to entry level and this appears be a 290s which was the bottom model in the Signature series. It's a much...

I think this question should be thrown out to the group--is Kool Lemon the fastest color? Typically, red is considered faster, but that particular shade of lemon could be considered a PED, right?

Well, unless you want to cut an arm off or something, you aren't going to be able to vary your weight much in a reasonably short time frame. But you're talking about an event where a couple of pounds...

Dont know that model, but no matter, get at computer with digital transmission. Analog transmission is prone to noise pickup that can make the speedometer and odometer unreliable.

Of note, folks would need a wheel speed sensor to do this to that level of data. The Notio I've got claims 4 datapoints a seconds, but not sure the Garmin speed sensor reports that quickly.

Looking at the gear calculator, 39/24 only gets you about 16mph at 125 rpm, not even 18 mph at 140 rpm.

I think you'll have to shift to reach your goal.

You must be one of those who knows everything about cycling, but has never cycled a day in his life. Evidence is clear with knowledge of gears and mild gradients.
