I noticed that every bike company claims to have the lightest, stiffest, and most aero bike. Everyone seems to measure these things differently. Isn’t there an industry standard to help me compare bikes?

I've been reading through the posts about bottom brackets that fit BBright and can't seem to understand what bottom bracket type is the "recommended" one if I want to add a crank based power meter.

I’m travelling to a few triathlons this summer and need to pack my P5 in an airline case. What case/method do you recommend?

Just Noticeable Difference

Just Noticeable Difference

Every now and then I try to notice comfort and stiffness differences between bikes but I still can't. Saves me a lot of anxiety when picking bikes at least =) I only have to consider wind tunnel, paint, and price!

650C vs 700C?

650C vs 700C?

I am 5'2" and did a lot of research on this last year, when I was in the market for a tri bike. Do you have any data for 650 vs. 700Cs? Thanks!
