actually most of the article has since been refuted or clarified- much like every other Bicycling article.

Anything out of "Bicycling" is widely known to be total crap.

MIT ISN'T EXACTLY AN ATHLETIC POWERHOUSE. DO YOU EVER FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO PROVE AT RACES?

Cote: It's not as much about proving that we're strong cyclists as it is about proving that it's not just being strong that makes you a good cyclist.



We dont need to be strong when we've got gadgets MEh Meh MEeEEhhhh!

After you beat me in a sprint lets have a face kicking contest.

The magazine is irrelevant, its who did the research and the methods that matter. Only recently have we in the Doc biz taken "evidence based medicine " seriously. You would be surprised how many things Doctors or cyclists do based on no evidence at all. How many years did you pump your tires up to 150lbs because, naturally, harder means less rolling reistance?

I remember reading that article when it came out in print. My favorite factoid from their wind tunnel tests was this one:

"On a round-tubed frame, having a bottle on your seat tube is more aerodynamic than not having one at all, and it's much more aero than putting it on the down tube. "

Depends on how aero your head is. Anyone had theirs tested?
