Her rides must be protected as I couldn't dig up more info.

I wonder why. :rolleyes:

Our head if IT infrastructure has an FTP of 400, every time I look at his rides in Strava it makes me sick

If it makes you feel any better, my FTP is around 185. Sad.

A few years ago he did the B to VT ride (starts at Harpoon in Boston, ends at their other Brewery in VT) which is about 150 miles with 8k of climbing at a 26 average pace.

If that's the case, he's a genetic freak; I wouldn't let it bother you.

It's tubeless already. The Stans has failed me, apparently.

Genetics always win out. When you have racers that weigh less than datlas, and easily double his ftp, that stuff can't be "trained into".

No way. People definitely need two hours of exercise a day.

How big of a cut? Stan's seems to work pretty poorly at road pressure, but I thought that MTB was easy peasy. Maybe you need one of their new plug kits or maybe you just need more sparkle in your life.

Fine print says body weight is "non-transferable" kinda like frequent flier miles.

Agree. This guy is gifted, so he probably has couch fitness that could whoop most of our collective butt.

No clue, I was considering taking my bike to work to hit the trails afterwards but went into the garage last night, saw it was totally flat, and said "future abshipp can deal with that crap" :lol:

I've never heard of any complaints with Stans at MTB pressures, either.

One of the least intelligent marketing ploys I remember seeing.
