I wonder if you've mixed things up. 6.22lt/100km is a greater (worse) consumption than 4.99 lt/100km.On 2006-12-19 14:34, flyingbiker wrote:
All on the standard 19T sprocket, mostly one up with mix of LA slab (slow!) and canyon carving:
Best: 6.22 l/100km
Worst (but probably the best ride ): 4.99 l/100km
Average since purchase in May 05: 5.65 l/100km
Fuel conservation is not a priority when I buy a bike, but I like to track the numbers as one measure of the bikes health. Just switched to the 18T, so will see what (if any) measurable effect that has.
Regardless, it seems everybody is getting more milage than I am. Maybe it is that my bike is still new, or my spirited riding, or all the hills and bends over here combined with high speed highway riding.
