comment Fluid trainer for an intermediate rider
Just want to comment on the fluid type, since it simulates road condition, I couldn't do slow pedalling and have high resistance at the same time even in top gear. Where with Tacx (or other magnetic) I can adjust the braking power with the switch. Could be important if you do that kind of interval.

comment Fluid trainer for an intermediate rider
I've been through the debate. I'm actually wondering if you've decided yet because the Tacx Flow you have in your options is actually an electro brake, not fluid (which I believe better than fluid ;) see tacx.com/en/products/trainers/flow I have an old satori (magnetic) it's no more noisy than fluid (tried cyclops), just tyre noise.

comment Bicycling 36 km per day in city traffic is feasible?
I don't care about fixing flat (or other problem) in and around the city, I'd just catch a train, cab or uber and fix it in comfort J

Why not magnetics? I understand they claim to have realistic road feel, but when you're doing intervals then all that matters is the resistance or braking power.

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.

comment Why use 54T (or bigger) chainring?
@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?
