so with a little number crunching....using my friday night 191 overpass challenge... that means if shawn and i did a flying 200m downhill in a 39x21-- he would only beat me by .6 seconds.....which is considerably better than the 1.8 seconds he is faster than me now. that also means, rick, that with 179, if we did a flying 200 in a tiny gear, i'd beat you by more than a second. sorry skinny quads........ this all means nothing, yet somehow fascinating.
for a review of the rules: on top of overpass, get in tiny gear (like 39x21) and spin down and fast as you can until your eyes are going to pop out and see how fast you can get your cadence. this is the overpass challenge.take up the challenge!
