Dilemma...

I've been doing 99% of my riding this year on the R3. Every time I ride, I'm convinced I'm faster on this bike than my P2. Last night at the weekly duathlon, for fun, I threw on some clip-on aerobars, and decided to put the R3 to the test. Holy crap, I was faster on the R3. (Fastest Bike split this year, and 6th fastest overall from 45 previous duathlons). We did have a nice wind on the way back last night - but the people who normally pass me didn't; and I was able to keep up with people who I normally can't keep up with. I expected my 2nd run to suffer somewhat, but it was the 4th fastest of all time. Oh brother. I do have some new 320TPI tires for the P2. I will try them next week, and see what happens!
