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.

comment Why to choose 36 or 32 spokes (or another number)?
Weight weenies is a small class. I think less spokes is more common with aero wheels; aerodynamics affect all riders. Unlike weight which only matters when accelerating or on steep gradient.

comment Advice needed re Carbon Fiber vs Shocks
I don't think you can find data for frames other than road bike frames because big companies sell road bikes. The point is those are all carbon fibre frames and the closest numbers if you want to compare against shocks. I also don't see price mentioned as being a factor; lot of people commute on road bikes too. I just remember, Trek also sold carbon road bike (Trek Pilot s.p.a) with rear "suspension" and normal chain stays. S.P.A = suspension performance advantage. I think the travel was also about 0.5 inch. It's got a mention on en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_suspension.

revised Do road tubeless tyres lose air faster?
Made the title more explicit and readable. Add tag "inflation" and fixed some minor details in the post.

comment Do road tubeless tyres lose air faster?
I was there when they wrestled the tyre and saw that they put sealant in it, although by pouring it rather than injecting trough the removable valve core, and heard the tyre pop as it seated the rim. I'll ask them about cleaning and tyre bead.

@DanielRHicks I have no idea why they don't when there's no cross winds involved. This girl looks pretty brave though canadiancyclist.com/races12/olympics/partsix/images//…

I clarified my question. I know it would cause deflection, but is it worse than full aero setup. Maybe some experiments too if you got some :p
