Rick you need to adjust that from kilometers to miles. No way that is accurate. I can come down Townhall road and pedal my ass off on my road bike with Ksyriums and only hit 43 or so, GPS measured. That is WAY off.

So the fastest riders in the world on the fastest bikes in the world coming down some of the steepest mountains in the world are only going around 10mph faster than you? Where do you order your EPO from?

No its accurate, it is MPH, I can't help if you guys are slow I will take the GPS with me the next time. I have, on this bike in 1989 hit 60 MPH, old cateye I had on the bike, who knows if that was accurate tho. The Giro de Toronto. I was in a pack, 12 of us, I was drafting my younger brother, long roll down LakeShore Blvd, wind behind us, fastest I have been on the bike. The unfortunate thing was I tapped my brother's rear tire went down, taking the entire pack, except my brother. opphs.

All this week on the same stretch I have been hitting 36 to 42.

Thats what is wrong with you guys, you think its the bike, its not the bike, it is and always has been the rider. You know it, I know it. There is something obviously wrong with it, I haven't found it yet. You could put Ody on the latest, greatest, CF bike and he couldn't hit 15 MPH. Cycling is an art form. I see too many, who dress like Lance, have $5000 bikes and a 12 year old girl on a Huffy can out pedal them. Hesus even a noob like my wife can spot someone who is clueless. Coming down a steep mountain road isn't the best place to go fast. Too many tight switch backs, where they are hitting max speeds is in a pack, usually on a long straight descent of maybe 6 degrees. There is no way I could keep up with any world class cyclist, not only are those guys animals on the bike, they would out think, out maneuver me in a heart beat. But hitting 48, after a long descent, pedaling at 160 rpm coming on to the flats can be done by any experienced cyclist, who is knowledgeable, and on a well tuned bike. Speed on a bike is all about form, consistency and knowledge, only a very small portion is reliant on the bike. 80% rider, 20% bike....holds true here too, Contador won the TDF because he was able to bring all kinds of factors together.

But in all likelihood, there is something wrong with the 'puter.

I don't cheat, just bend them in my favor

Damn its good to be me

Well when you guys hit my age, I want to see what you guys look like. That was accomplished by being in the gym 3 hours everyday, no alcohol and eating right. Anyone can do it.

I think the gerbil in that 1972 Cateye is getting tired and throwing your readings off. Step up to GPS and show me what that says. I think Ody could hit 16mph easy though.

I'll be interested on what the GPS will say, compared to the Trek. I can't figure where in the hell I went wrong in the set up, I have carefully checked it 3 times.

If Ody hit 16 mph, he would throw out a lung, have a heart attack

I bet the gps will tell you you're going at least 10mph slower than that number. Not because I don't think you're fit, or that your old, but because 48mph is ridiculous on the flats.

Just keep it where it's at and believe that. You won't want to know what the actual number is.

The entire peloton in the Tour with the strongest riders in the world were doing about 40 leading up to the sprint, with a tailwind too. Unless you do this stuff on a regular basis and have GPS you can't really understand what kind of effort we are talking about here. My buddy Scott has a Cervelo with aero bars and Zipp wheels and disc, about 170 lbs. and 300 watt FTP or so just like me, and we were only doing about 35 at our fastest on the flats in the Bigfoot tri. We were top 10 in the bike out of about 500 or something.

The 48 was most likely a glitch, because for the life of me I can seem to figure out where I have gone wrong.
