Hi My Name is Ed Sinofsky and I am a 58 year old Physicist living on Cape Cod Massachusetts. I started biking in February on a pedal assist ebike. It has changed my life. I hit 5000 miles today on a 65 mile group ride. I have been interested in aerodynamics since I was a teen, my first job was making sails for boats. I became an optical physicist and work on medical optics and LED lighting art. I windsurfed for decades, and stand up paddle board. All involve aero.
This week I averaged 20.5mph for 190 miles, I like to ride fast and far. Since I have an ebike I don’t participate in Strava leaderboards or race. I compete against my own PRs. I take a lot of data and saw a big increase in speed when I went from 2 inch to 1.5 inch tires. I currently run 27.5", but am thinking about changing to 700c wheels by 28 or 30 mm tires.
As a scientist I am fascinated by what my increase in speed, or increase in battery range at the same speed aero wheels may offer. If my budget was bigger I would have already ordered some, but since I don’t really compete it is hard to justify the expense. I have a new idea I need to save up for a patent on.
But anyway aero wheels look cool, and this brand seems very interesting. I like Jame’s style in the videos I have watched.
Be well and keep the rubber down!
