that the frame size of the rider correlates to THEIR power output.
In GENERAL, YES. That is a matter of fact. Otherwise You would assume that taller/heavier riders are slower than the small one!
So if you see two identical builds up against a cafe wall, one of them size 48 and the other a 56, without seeing who is riding which bike, you are assuming that the person with the smaller frame puts out less power than the taller riders? Again, naïve and shortsighted.
YES, that is exactly what each frame manufacturer has to consider.
Let's go for a ride sometime, I'll wait for you at the top.
Funny, You never met me, and You are so sure, You drop me
Even if You droped me, I could have used SO MUCH more power to get up the hill than You!
Just becasue, I could be heavier than You (to get more weight up the hill = more power to do it in a certain time.....
Even if You get up there 5minutes earlier and I ll be 150kg, YES, I would be the one who put MUCH MORE POWER to the bike (absolute numbers, not watt/kg)
We live in a World which measures cycling performance in TIME, the sooner You are at the finish line, the better You are. Right?
So, who uses more power to get to the finish line wheel to wheel considering Purito and Greipel???
And one more thing.....if You are taller... the frameset tubes are longer, Your arms and legs are longer. You need MORE material to deal with it.
Simple as it is.
Lets stop this discussion....this thread is about RCA.
