Today I took my Fuji DF for my typical 32 mile loop. I just added a cyclometer, but it has no average speed. Fortunately, I am good in math, so I divided the time by distance to get my average speed. To my surprise I was just 1/4-1/2mph faster than on my Trike. This really amazed me because my Fuji weighs 34# with accessories while my faired ICE T trike weighs a whooping 52#. You would think the 18# difference would transcribe into a much faster time. Apparently, the aerodynamics of the trike is far more important, not to mention the comfort benefits. I'm sure if I road a sub 20# bike I would be much faster, but that is not in my financial future. I do believe my next bike will be a stripped down speedster designed only for fast club rides. In the meantime, I will continue to do utility miles and just ride for pleasure. When I want company I will have to find slow club riders.
