comment Why choose a traditional frame over an aerodynamically streamlined frame?
Hey, don't jump all over me, I'm completely uninvested in your argument. All I know is I read "how could 'a placebo effect' alter the recorded speed and power?" which would seem to indicate two separate measurements which could easily be affected by false believe in a placebo. I only mentioned them as "the metrics" because you mentioned them as the metrics. If you're saying that the power was the same but the speed increased, that wouldn't seem to be as easily linked to a placebo effect.

@R.Chung That's what the placebo effect is. He's alleging that the cyclist subconsciously tried harder because he believed he was on a faster bicycle. The placebo effect could absolutely effect metrics like speed and power output.

Oh, in the interests of full disclosure, I test drove both (well, the next model down in each case, the R3 and S2) and chose the S2 because it came with a SRAM Red group set. Both felt fantastic and I'm having a hard time figuring out why a company would provide both bike series if there is any clear advantage to one or the other.

No, they're roughly the same price.

This varies between different types of patch kits, and your specific patch kit probably came with instructions. We can't possibly give you an exhaustive "checklist" for every type of puncture/patch without making it so generic as to be useless.
