when your budget implodes yet you want marginal gains and like DIY tinkering.

Anyone fancy counting how many UCI Rules I broke with this rig? LOLZ

Great power and speed Rich. solid effort. Whats the (east coast?) racing scene like? Your effort was super strong but on the west coast at my local 10 mile tt the top 5 guys are averaging 360+ watts with many over 6w/kg for 20 mins. some of the fastest official times there have been guys doing over 400 watts. I'm also asking about the racing scene because I might go to college on the east coast and just want to know how it is. not saying one or another is better or easier, just genuinely interested.
Except by any definition east coast is easier. Watts don't lie.

Both have ridden the Giro d’Italia.
Both rode a UCI legal set up.

Just worth noting.

It's a very cool story. Bro. You're not comparing apples to apples with regards to Alex for starters. And keen to know what exactly was illegal with Marcin? His set up is still nothing on yours with regards to how close to UCI legal.

Of course I'm not comparing apples for apples. Those two guys are professional athletes... :roll:

I train <8 hrs a week and have a full time job!

When Marcin set the 25mi Competition Record, his position had his hands in an almost identical position to mine. High. Outside the +10cm above the centre of the pad measurement.

Besides, what's your point?

Stoo... don't let Mark Twain get under your skin... He hasn't done anything worth noting (which is why he hides behind his anonymous persona) and so he gets his kicks trying to knock others down. You are racing based on the rules you're allowed to compete within, trying to go as fast as you can go. That's awesome and I think it is pretty awesome that you're kicking ass and taking names, while still working on holding down a normal life.

Its not a grand tour, 8 hours is enough time to have an exceptional engine for an hour. Only your CdA is nowhere near what Alex (and even Marcin, given how everything else on his bike was UCI legal) is. That drag makes up for a lot. So couch your hubris within your cohort, is my point. By all means actually claim "fastest non UCI legal UK 25 mile TT". In fact I just said it for you. I should have added congrats. My apologies there.
He hasn't done anything worth noting
All I spoke was the truth Richard. Yet you keep wanting to create a strawman where I need to qualify my racing palmares before being permitted to make a comment on an internet forum.

Oh no, I'm not trying to say that you need to qualify your racing palmares before being pemitted to comment, you're free to make a comment and have an opinion. Its just that that opinion shouldn't hold much weight because you're just some guy commenting on the internet. We don't know anything about you or if you speak from experience, so why give it any weight. Stoo, for example, is the opposite. I know he's out there pinning a number, competing. He speaks from experience and clearly understands what it takes, so when he recognizes the work and effort that's gone in, he acknowledges that and congratulates, and when he sees an area that can be improved his makes suggestions.

Rich, now you're just being ignorant and contradicting yourself with logical fallacies. On top of the denial.

Why? They were all three competing under CTT rules. To try to undermine @Stoo's great performance by claiming that he had some sort of unfair advantage is unnecessarily cruel.
