  1. Ok, so these tests are not very scientific, fine, that’s acceptable. But don’t you guys (Peloton) think t would at least be appropriate to position Mr. H the same on each bike? After all, that’s what an actual owner of one of these would do, position the bars according to their usual drop and reach. If you want to get any sort of reliable data on the comparability of these bikes on descents, should you not at least run the same wheels, tires (and pressure), and rider position? These variables are vital and can easily be controlled

    For the record, I have an S5 and run a 130 x -17 degree stem slammed to get the bars down. A -23 stem would also be used, if necessary.

  2. Americans trying to emulate Top Gear and The Stig are rather sad. The whole thing would be much more interesting if we had a bloke with an English accent running the presentation. And ditto what MattS said.

  3. Evidently all testing is with a bike as it comes so no controls on equip. Also all testing is at different times of the day on different days so no controls on environment. Lastly positions are not duplicated so no controls on the biggest drag factor. Good entertainment but no actual value for a decision.
