    That's nuts. I'd love to take a sub 22lb bike for a spin at big cedar or dinosaur valley just to see how it climbed. Very nice man.

    Thank you, it's a blast. Also on hardtop passing road bikes gets the best(strange) looks.

    Actually, if he was going uphill the advantages of a road bike vs. a light MTB become minor. It's mostly sheer power/weight. What's more, on long road climbs I've seen guys on old, beat-up, wally-world bikes absolutely rocket past fit, expensively-kitted-up roadies.

    Lots of Variables at play. But generally I am going for 155+ HR and pushing it so I do pass most people on Road bikes at some point either up or down hill. Today I had two draft me for a while then I left them. Ive caught up to GROUPs and passed them multiple time. I have also been passed by people on road bikes obviously. Just depends how much go fuel I have in me and my head.

    I pass a good percentage, half pass me, others trade off till routes change. I usually use the fast ones as motivation and chase ( not draft ) till I catch and pass them. Since I ride solo it is my sole source of external motivation. I have plenty of internal.
