Totally agree with you. I've thought twice (and more) before commenting on the power output of the OP (but I did, with total respect ) vs the C60 being a climbing machine. I explained why in my previous post. Everyone is different, buth that's the great thing of a forum like this : everyone can share his own opinions, and free to other to disagree of course
And my Strava account is open to everyone
(I should ditch the link to my previous Canyon and replace it with a link to Strava, or, WW should offer the possibility to add more than 3 links in the signature
Thanks Dellore for sharing ur strava profile. This really help to get idea what we ride, where the power is important, or just get idea what to ride
Also ur idea about sharing strava in forum profile is great (i suggested something similar few weeks ago, but nobody replied). Why is that important? I always appreciate someone who actually ride and comment, then to someone who dont ride at all, and just comment around based on what he read on the net or magazines (and have his bike just for show up in cigar club...).
And for people commenting about low power outpot on 3000m climb, i still wait for their 3000m climbs, since i will be really suprised if someone can ride that full power . Usually on this kind of ride u dont push that much, but idea is to finish after all (if someone tried to ride this kind of ride im sure he know that).
Anyway i got interested about ur ridings and i really like how many km's u done this season (u deserve more then kudos for having 12130 km this season, thats really impressive and im glad u replied to my topic). But i can also see that u ride are not in hilly area and most of ur climbs are not that long but more of rollings hills. There is different power on short climbs (its more like sprinting), then on continous and steep. (maybe there is long rides, but i stopped analyzing). Of course on this short climbs sprinting u better feel reaction of frame, but believe me.. On very long rides, with not much power u also start feeling every aspect of ur bike including climbing capability (beside lower avg power), so that why i shared that ride as climbing test (and not short ones where i push more).
Just to have idea what i like to ride (very hot temperature here, 38-42 deg celsius): https://www.strava.com/activities/1079586038
Or this one: https://www.strava.com/activities/1058327276
Or my Birthday ride: https://www.strava.com/activities/689686613
Of course i dont always ride massive elevation same day, and sometimes ride a bit harder when climbing (at least i try
For example: https://www.strava.com/activities/1047570037
Check segment: Tetovo-Lisec (11.1 km, 7% HC), i averaged 220W and 12.9 avg speed
(Segment: Ramno, 8.4 km, 9% avg grade HC), i averaged 216 W
Im lazy for looking for my best climbs on C60 , but from this u have idea what i ride ussually. I tried some of those climbs with different bikes, and i really feel C60 like better reacting when i push the pedals, and in same time more comfortable (very important for long rides...)...
Whatever it is, i really enjoy riding my C60. It make me want ride more, and thats most important. Just wanted to share my personal experiance (and rides), and will be very good if other members of this forum share their rides or even better as u said to include strava in the ww signature... So we'll better know how users shape their opinion...
Consider again that C60 is a bit cheaper then S-Works Tarmac, or Cervello frames or Oltre XR4, or Specialissima.. So i did not buy it as status simbol, but i really enjoyed most of everything i tried..
And nobody answer me, what is ur opinion about minimum power effort to be able to feel the frame difference?
