Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I thought so, but I never completed physics. Some guy in my local club is claiming he got smoked riding with someone when they both pedaled at 90 rpm in the same gear over the same route. It's funny reading responses like "Weight could make a difference." While weight differences (and rider weight difference, and differences in aero properties) between the two bikes would affect the amount of energy required to produce the work, it would not change the distance covered over time assuming same gear, same cadence and same wheel/tire circumference. At least that's what my non-trained intellect tells me.
People claim dumb things.

Effective rolling radius is the proper wheel variable.

I agree. I wish rotors had spokes.

I just keep my truing lever on a shelf next to where my bike hangs; once a week or so I'll give the wheels a spin to see if there's any kissing of the pads and then give it a little love. These sandwiched Shimano rotors are so much easier to manipulate than the all steel variety - just a little tweak will do.

Oops. I just drank 3 pints of juice from the juice bar within a half hour. That's
1095% vitamin A
1029% vitamin C
I hope my body can handle all those vitamins.

That's a bonus feature - might as well cauterize your stumpy nubs.

Except, complicated by Operation Refresh Madone

Want to install saddle
Replace cables
Replace brifter covers (I think you have to remove them from the bars to do this?)
Re-wrap bars (I can do this, obviously)

It seems I should take the bike, saddle, and the brifter covers to the bike store and have them put the covers on when they do the cables? Then wrap the bars after everything else is done?
