Consumers often complain they can’t verify aero claims made by manufacturers. True, unless you have a windtunnel in your backyard.
But you can use the laws of probability and common sense to set the minimum level by which a bike manufacturer would lie about its models’ aerodynamics. Here is now:
- Bike manufacturers make claims on weight and on aerodynamics.
- The first you can verify, the second you can not.
- I would say they will AT BEST their aero claims will be as honest as their weight claims. Probably the aero claims will be even less honest.
Makes sense, doesn’t it? If they lie 10% about a claim you can verify, do you really expect them to lie less about a claim you can’t check? So get out those scales and go weigh some aerodynamics!
