First of all let me say, although we disagree, I appreciate the effort of the graphs.

In your first few sets of graphs you're comparing someone pulsing between 45 and 35 mph, versus someone...

Yes I agree completely. The bike makes a big difference. I can't use disc brakes unfortunately. Parts availability are still a problem in a lot of places. It's not just the disc brake anymore. The...

You seem to think that simply keeping the brakes constantly applied will always result in a large amount of heat to be generated. Causing the drag braking technique to always out-heat the pulse...

Sure, sure. Whatever you say.

Someone with a post-doctorate and who was a professor of engineering at MIT wrote an entire 480 page book, but of course you know better. You are right and the MIT...

Mister I think there is no point in us continuing this. You're clearly living in another plane of existence where reality is irrelevant to you.

Your argument is simply absurd. No, a bike that is drag brake is NOT necessarily going slower than a bike that is pulse braking. A rider can drag as hard or lightly as they like, just as a rider and...

"The one caveat is that with pulse braking, the time of travel is likely shorter due to the higher average speed and the air flow is higher due to that higher average speed so more heat is lost in...

It's a great analogy. You just didn't get it, I'm sorry. The same way you're not getting how it works with the rims. I tried to make it easier to understand but it didn't help.

Your modification to the analogy is wrong. You're taking a fair scenario and changing it to be unfair. In your version you end up pouring less overall volume of water into your glass compared to the...

If you fill a glass with water, it's the same amount of water whether you drip it in slowly, or fill the glass in a few big pours spaced out in time. Dripping continuously vs several big pours does...

This is exactly slinky braking you're describing right here. I'm sorry but if I had to ride like that I would go insane.

You just don't get it. Pulse braking, you're braking hard some of the time...

This is utterly wrong. The brake pads cover less than one square inch of the rim. They're not some blanket that prevents heat from escaping. Your rims are losing heat at the same rate regardless of...

You're saying the rim cannot cool when the brake is on?

No sure where you got this idea from. The rim is dissipating heat all the time, whether you are applying the brakes or not. When you use the...
