The Aero Bike Shootout: The Results are Imminent ... in 14.06 Days
Quote | Reply
Numbers are still being crunched and verified, but the report and results release is imminent. The data are unambiguous: there is a winner.

Bikes Tested: Felt B Series | Diamondback Andean | Cervelo P5-6 | Cervelo P5-X | Ventum One | Premier Tactical

Use this thread to make your guesses and air your speculation



Also, just kidding about the 14.06 days. We'll publish when we're good and ready....which will be soon, I promise.

If you have any last wishes for this report, this is the place to ask or discuss.

I'm guessing number 6 is Ventum.

It's interesting how asymmetric number 6 is compared to all others.

We'll obviously find out soon, but I'm betting that at best you have 1 and 2 reversed. I won't be surprised if you're more wrong than that.

If I'm wrong, my P5-X opinion remains unchanged.

Good question that I thought a lot about. Grams of drag at 30 mph. There are pluses and minuses to this, but ultimately this needs to be a report that most people understand, and I think those units better lend themselves to comprehension than CdA or CdX

Can you tell us the range of drag from 1-6 or do we have to wait? IOW did bike 1 really blow away the others or does it just look like that?

Hope we get uncertainties with that data, point estimates alone aren't very informative

purely for entertainment purposes, I'm hoping #1 and #2 are the two disc brake bikes.

You'll have to wait. Otherwise I would have left the y axis. One of the big question is, of course, how close these bikes actually are, aerodynamically speaking

I'm not sure what you mean. You're hoping for uncertainty? Or you want uncertainty to be quantified and disclosed?

In the meantime, we'll just amuse ourselves by inventing our own labels for the axes.

I'm guessing it's median daily UV exposure vs. transverse frame cross-sectional area.

I'm not insinuating any foul play with this ....but I'd also like to see an accounting of the $$ collected and where they were spent..

Transparency is a good thing.
