Thanks.
My bad, all I meant to say was that I felt the difference between two sets of tires, and the tires according to brr had a 4-5 watt difference in rolling resistance. That is to say I can notice having to expend 10 more watts than usual to go the same speed apparently, but I think rolling resistance magnifies the feeling of slowness since you slow down more quickly when you coast.

I think it was the cyclingtips podcast, but I recall the EF Nippo and Quick Step reps were unequivocal that clinchers and tubeless tires are faster than tubulars. In some cases up to 12 watts, so while riders may choose tubulars they have at least clearly been informed by team management of pros and cons.

OK, thanks. Now I have another reason to not get a power meter. I may succumb someday, but if I do buy one I think I'll be pretty disappointed in my numbers.

This is something that has crossed my mind about this goop as well as batteries etc used now to shift or propel what was once considered a very "green" form of transportation/exercise etc
