Funny how people still believe in the "if it looks fast it'll be fast." I see quite a few things on the BMC that aren't optimal and would bet the S5 is the more aero bike.

Matching protocols can't account for variables they don't control. Comparing aero data across different tests should be deemed impossible.

yeah i guess that's probably the main conclusion to be drawn here.

i wouldn't necessarily have expected the tmr01 to match the s5 given that its a bit less full on aero but thought it would be more in line with s5 than trek - tmr01 is a proper kammtail with much of the teardrop intact, just missing the last bit whereas the trek is basically a rounded triangle missing virtually all of the tail. maybe the trek designers know what they're doing :shock: and the tail is not significant unless you have it all

I asked this on the other "aero frame" thread, but....
how does the old Carbon Soloist rate, aero wise, compared to the modern stuff?
thanks. I just bought an old red one for a song.

I know I was the one to respond before but I thought you might like a little data; here is a test with the old s3, only difference from S3 to Soloist Carbon is the seatstays, which was more about ride quality and less about aerodynamics as I understand it; either way probably within spitting distance in terms of drag:
