The main reason I got into road biking is because I like the efficiancy of it. Going fast on minimal effort.

So my first thread on here is a question that I am sure has been asked before:


For over all efficiancy how much bearing does weight have on your bike compared to the stiffness of it?

Thank you for any help.

Efficiency?

The short answer is, no. Unless your frame is flexing so much that it turning your pedaling power into heat, stiffness has minimal impact on efficiency. On the flats, weight has miminal impact as well. It's mostly about the motor, a clean and properly lubed set of components, good tires, and overwhelmingly aerodynamics.
