Thought I’d share this for you lovely folk.

Shock results from the Ridley!

Cannondale definitely did their research in the wind tunnel...

Wonder why the CDale BB did so bad considering CDale said they hit their goal for it?

Cdale also uses 23c tires.. so no ballon effect on leading edge... everyone else uses 25+

It did badly? Looks to be very stiff at 101Nm, bested by the S5 but with the stiffest Headtube and fairly competitive seatpost flex.

All tests are on Zipp 404s with same tyres to make it fair.

2019 Cervelo S5 Disc was 3w SLOWER with its standard DT Swiss 50mm wheels.

I meant the one where they scored 3.0. Is that HT? Again, maybe Tour has a different standard than CDale which is why Tour penalized it but CDale wanted it.

the madone numbers don't make any sense. it goes from 204W rim brake version to 212W . can anyone translate madone test results.

So... except for the new SystemSix, all of the fastest bikes are with rim brakes.

And all 2016 rim brake aero bikes are faster than their respective 2019 disc versions.

It would be interesting to to see if a 2019 rim brake Madone would have improved over the 2016 one.

And it would be quite entertaining to see what would happen if UCI dropped the 6.8 kg weight limit now...

Got to have something to sell in the next product cycle, that’s likely when they’ll lower the weight limit and tell us we need rim brakes again.

Well, it's a shame the Cannondale is so heavy.
I want to see the new Cervelo S3 Rim tested.

yes - discs are slower; pretty much end of story.
