no, i mean it needs a lower power output to travel @ a certain speed!

Guys, you are right, I prefer the american position. So I prefer sitting VERY forward. I feel that the power output is way better that way.

And I have to agree, the Lightweights are much stiffer then the tune olympic gold, which I have on my TT. But they are still iron stiff compared to some Corimas I have test ridden last year, yuck!!! Talk about gum...
