That is true. But does it count since I rode the tri-bike?

395w for 20 mins is BIG power for someone that's not a pro. That should put your CP 60 at well over 300 w. I'm guessing you don't weigh 150 lbs., but if you weigh anywhere near that you are smoking fast. Heck, even if you weigh 180 lbs. with that power you are still smoking fast. Way to go.

For a big amateur (200+), that's not unreasonable. I was close to that at 165lb in my prime.

I was thinking in terms of "normal" bike racer body type. But you are correct, as usual. You were also a Cat 1, if I remember correctly, and the slowest guy in a Cat 1 race is smoking fast. I was a mere Cat 3 and not smoking fast. If he IS 200+ lbs, I want be on his wheel! Be a nice draft...unless we are going uphill.

You guys are making me feel really slow, lololol. Cat-1 Emilio crushes your dreams. Cat-3 Mini-P thinks the OAS group is slow, lol. I suck at life. Seriously, when you and Michael said that OAS was slow, my heart sank. Faster than OAS is beyond my comprehension. I have so much work to do and it's basically snowing outside.

I'm about 178lbs, not light, not too heavy. Working my way down to 170. I am just as much a 5-20 second guy as a 20 minute guy. My max sprint is about 1650w.

I am hoping to get my cat 1 by the end of the season, but the strongest guy rarely ever wins the race.

The thread has gone "race-cut" on us :(

All relevant discussion. Those of us with more hours on the bike get to hand down some hard earned knowledge. If you get something positive out of cycling, you belong in this thread.

What I sorta laugh at is the cycling newbs like Hustler lumping tri bikes and their riders in with TT bikes and their riders. That's like lumping your average N/A Miata w2w racer in with intermediate level HPDE guy in a stock EVO. Apples vs oranges. If I had a dime for every poorly fitted tri-geek pedaling squares at 50rpm, maxed out at 22mph that I blew by on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) while sitting on the tops chatting with a training buddy at 25mph.. I'd buy you and Trey a nice lunch.

Most tri guys I have seen on the roads have no idea how to pedal or set up an efficient riding position. The bike is something to be endured after the run and swim for them it seems.

Watching a world class Time Trialer whistling along at 34mph for an hour at 95rpm with their upper body almost perfectly still is poetry.

At the slight risk of derailing the thread, how so?

All I see is the usual 2014 Aerodickę without any attempt to conceal it by painting it black or whatever. If anything, theirs would appear to be the most egregious. What cleverness do you see in it?

Is there a new F1 thread?

They mounted the wing from the ***** rather than just sticking their ***** out there. Unfortunately we'll never know if it was a good idea since the its attached to a caterham and the rest of the car is assuredly rubbish.

The knowledge is appreciated, of course. I was just poking a little fun at the sudden influx of hardcore racers and the resulting discussion. It's humbling to read and absorb. Carry on

My goal is to be as obnoxious as possible, at all times. However, I still firmly believe tri-bikes are too ugly to love. I'm totally weak, let that be clear, but I already have a TT-bike story. I was out in the country, in the middle of nowhere, eating an eclair while I rode (lol) and this beaten looking Fred on a TT bike caught up to me, chatted as he panted, and then I pedaled away. I kind of felt bad for the dude since I was eating a donut, lol.

On a related note...I don't know how to set-up a front derailleur properly. It shifts fine and I don't necessarily need the trim adjustment on the big ring, but I'd like for it to work properly. So, when I actuate "trim" from the big ring, it pops but doesn't move. Does that mean the cable is too tight, too loose, or the stop is adjusted too far in? I watched a few vids and read a few pages and I'm not sure how to fix this.

This is going to sound stupid but get the Shimano instructions for the exact components you are using. Read them in their entirety. All those weird clicks, mysterious dust covers, little hidden switches and adjustment screws. Aha!

I have seen, and attempted to train so many kids in bike shops masquerading as mechanics that lacked basic knowledge on how to set up a Shimano derailleur properly, because they never RTFM. Ever. The info is right there and your average meathead installer tosses in the garbage. I don't need no stinkin instructions!

Cable too tight and outer limit screw probably too close as well.

I put the in-line barrel adjusters on "inverted" so when I was twisting, it was making the cable way shorter and not working properly, lol. Oops.

Now that I know how deep your hate is for TT/Tri-bikes, when we do a road ride together I will ride the Shiv and you will bow down to it's power as you struggle to get a draft that really isn't there because I'm punching such a small hole in the wind. Heck, I may wear my skinsuit, pointy helmet, and shoe covers just to embarrass you more!

You're going to ride alone, lol. I don't mind the skinsuit, if it's the tuxedo.

Edit: I'll need to take the Shiv for a spin, I've never been on one. Yes, it's still ugly.
