      Hmm. Harder to control geometry just isn't true, that's why IRS is used on every sporty car out there. But if the other reasons are why it isn't used, it seems like its just a matter of time until...

      Okay, this is a dumb question that reflects my lack of desert racing knowledge. Why not independant rear suspension? Isn't the biggest strength of IRS better tracking on bumpy surfaces? It seems...

      I might be confusing you with someone else, but don't you have a gluten allergy? People with gluten allergies often have trouble tolerating dairy as well.

      Discs come in 140mm, 160mm, 180mm and 203mm. 160's are the most common though. The issue that you'll run into when swapping wheels is the lateral rotor spacing. You'll have to adjust her brakes...

      If you really want to do intervals, I'd do stuff to improve threshold power like 2x20s, over/unders, 1 hour TTs, etc. The higher your threshold power is, the better you race because you spend less...

      The medium short interval stuff really doesn't stick with you, its the first thing you lose when you get out of shape. If you improve that one minute power now and start back with the base, it will...

      It's going to be really tough (bordering on impossible) to motivate yourself to really suffer on the trainer. 1 minute intervals are one if the most painful things you can do on a bike. I'd say that...
