i wasnt sure where you were gonna go with this... but you got to the right place... you describe a HUGE problem overall in businesses that rely on data but dont have a close understanding of the products or the people who would be their customers... without the close understanding you get bad and incomplete data, and can't even make sense of what any of it may or may not mean... not sure this is whats happening here, but it happens lots of places...

i like the idea of teams competition pulling from men & women (as is the current rule)... if there were more value in the team standings every team would have a woman on it...

Added a comment about video Next Level Bike Geometry: An Interview with Chris Porter 10/19/2019 10:14 AM

i can really relate to what you are describing, and I agree that Chris is on to something. Even as a young rider in like 2000 i worked with Time to design a custom time trial frame. What did we do? Long, Low, Slack... for exactly the reasons Chris gave for mountainbikes... the bike was super stable at speed and cornered predictably... that geo just works... for all bikes... you still never see this outside of some mtb and gravel bikes...

Nobody inside any sport wants see it’s proven champions go down. They want to create Joe Namaths and Magic Johnsons and Babe Ruths who are going to last for centuries. Lance was a shot at that for cycling. Rude and Graves were working on being quite ... more »

Dictioanry police here. Sir, are you aware of what the word implode means and how it's incompatible with going from the inside out? It's literally the opposite of going from the inside out. That would be exploding. That's kind of word battery carries a long ... sentence.

I tinkered with their EDC tool at the bike shop one afternoon. Little bits went everywhere and I like to never got them back in. If not for the shop counter, I'd have lost half the stuff in it.

It's an enormous waste of time and a great way to get tired before your race. There are races where walking the tracks could mean 12 miles of hiking before your race, after getting off a plane from the other side of the planet. We have...more

I get that this is maybe not the popular view, but as a person in touch with the supplier side of the industry I am nodding my head acceptingly... bicycles are real... its about to blow up... we are in a new era...
