With a proper setup that includes a BTS flat-I remember the white paper that had gels taped to the top tube, which isn't representative of most setups.
Except it is. Maybe not the 0.05% of triathletes at the very pointy end. But as cerveloâ€™s research has shown most long course athletes load up their bikes with gels on top tubes etc.
We had this very same argument where people kept saying â€śthatâ€™s not how I set up my bikeâ€ť and they were right. But ST users forget that there are many many more triathletes in the world, most havenâ€™t even heard of ST and they mostly set to their bikes differently to you.
Hell, Iâ€™m on ST and I set up my bike like that!! And Iâ€™m more like the majority than most of the people on here.
