at 7minutes 20, you can see i got up ahead for a while. Really i think it was my usage of the shared path instead of the road that lost me the edge on those two. My question is- if im on a 375 quid bike, carrera vanquish, 11kg aluminium, not super dropped stem, and i were to be riding a much more expensive bike, 7kg, carbon fibre, aero wheels, is the performance gain really that large? How much faster is say a 2-3 grand road bike than a halfords road bike? I know its a piece of string question. But would like to ask anyhow.
