comment Is it realistic to fuel a long ride with NO sugar?
First paragraph is misleading. Your body uses different kind of fuels and the mix depends on the intensity. Having 10K calorie in fat doesn't mean you can ride without refuelling because the mix you burn probably closer to 50/50 (fat/carb). Also, avoiding sugars can't be all good. Eating potatoes in the last hour of riding is probably good for recovery because it takes longer to process. Powerbar is better in that situation and gel would even work faster.

comment Why use 54T (or bigger) chainring?
It's not obvious to me, so you're saying using bigger chainring allows selecting lower cogs -> closer ratios.

@Kibbee bigger chainring by itself makes gear ratios wider, not smaller. This is easy to check by watching speed difference between gears when in small and big chainring.

comment Why use 54T (or bigger) chainring?
I thought sprinters would need them more? If I watched tv correctly, the trains already running at 60+ kph in closing kms, they should already be at top gear. With sprint speed at finish line < 80 kph, they only need ~130 rpm. Right?

@Blam can anyone drive it that fast? 105 rpm cadence 50x11 already gives ~60 kph. How much faster do you want to get and why sprinters aren't having them?

comment How long do Garmin's cycling GPS devices take to get an initial GPS lock?
I also feel car GPSes lock faster and they don't have data connection. I don't think I wait for it to lock before driving. Any reason for that?

comment Aerodynamic effect of drafter to the draftee
I think drag caused by air behind really answers my question. It explains that in a group, the first and the last riders are doing some work.
