He said he did 41 miles. Been on the gin again?Well of course you've done 16 miles whether you were on a unicyle, a clown bike, a Penny Farthing, or even pulling an Airbus with your teeth.
But you've likely expended some more effort than if you were on a big wheeled bike, yes. The exact magnitude, I don't know, but probably something in the region of 30 percent more given the wheel circumferences? This is highly dodgy fag packet maths, pure guesswork for the fun of it by the way, and should in no way be taken seriously.
No it’s not!41 miles on a Brommy is great going and certainly much harder than say same distance on a road bike.
I did 8km this morning with 5km towing the dogs in their trailer (bike + gear + trailer + dogs = 90kgs) and there was 200m of the uphill stuff in there (some 6-7%) my legs were more tired than if i'd ridden a usual 50km road bike rode
My brain doesn't do numbers well, it's why I added the caveat at the end.He said he did 41 miles. Been on the gin again?
I‘d say that‘s good going on any bike, especially a Brompton in the wind today!
Bike weights the same?I did a rolldown test on a very go-faster titanium Brompton with Kojak folding tyres, against a fairly standard touring bike. Really smooth tarmac.
It was no contest - the touring bike romped it. A Brompton requires more effort and it's far more marked on coarser surfaces.
