Okay, so that's a theory. How does this square up with the spread among cyclists IRL? Is it those damn pacelines in FL and TX that are leading the surge? Somehow, I doubt that.

That's looking like the era of BMX bikes that I fell in love with as a kid. I can't remember for sure, but I think that I had a subscription for BMX Plus. I loved thumbing through that magazine.

I'm too fat for this sport, but I'd still go 24/24 (which is what I selected) on mid-depth carbon. If we're talking about a more shallow (~30mm) aluminum wheelset, I'd be more comfortable with 24/28.
