    Those are standard bars that come on the top end trek Madone, very aero and basic standard widths. They probably look wide because the ride is probably 5'10" and only 130 lbs. He has the typical super skinny road racer type build so his narrow shoulders make even normal bars look wide plus my wide angle lens doesn't help. He's also like 63 years old and was the only rider to hang on after we both dropped riders half his age so he ain't doing so bad. Also keep in mind narrower bars means less leverage for those out of the saddle efforts that keep you in contact with the rider ahead during those surge efforts.

    These will mostly be on the DF bike since it plays better in the group and the group makes for more exciting videos. I think you guys will especially like today's video when it's done.

    I'll reserve Vendetta videos for the sketchy fast DHs because those don't exist in the world of bents.

    Here's a good one to watch on your indoor session, just me with the group the whole time trying to keep breaks from forming. Notice how I don't chase and how the riders try to sit behind me in a game of chicken waiting to see if I'll get antsy and pull them up to the leader. It's fun to mess with the minds of road racers by doing the unexpected which is not chasing a win but instead riding with the group for fun. This can only be done if you're confident your speed is greater then most in the group though. What do you guys think of the new rear view placement and data gauges? I'm open to suggestions.

    I then I like rearview better on top. Like a rearview mirror in a car. Great vid.

    I wasn't very stoked on the top placement like a car. I like to see the riders pull through from the bottom of the screen and up into the front view. I think it makes the two view feel more connected. Did you notice the rear view in flipped? So when a ride pulls up on the bottom right them pass into the upper right when they go by. It looks better when a lot of passing is going on but looks a bit funny if you're focusing on just the rear view because the riders are shown on the wrong side of the road, unless you're in the U.K.

    Data gauges are better for me. Perhaps there is a way to minimize the rear view ?

    Rear view is already minimized quite a bit. Plus if I decide to ride faster then most the action is happening behind me and with a smaller rear view you won't see any of it. Unless you're just looking for the view of the road with solid data but that's boring in my opinion so not the goal of these videos.

    I honestly think the fast descending video with the Vendetta is a bit boring because there no other riders in the video. I wish there were more riders that could descend at those speed so I could get them on the mountain with me. I can never seem to get the other fast riders to match up with my ride schedule.

    I like the connectedness. Instead of the rear view being inset, is there a way to stack the videos above and below each other so that the smaller rear view is in its own screen and doesn't cut off the rear wheels of the riders in front of you?

    Naaaàa the V on the descent is perfect. If it frightens me it's going to frighten everyone.

    What I meant about the rear view: If you touch it, is it possible to move it over to the bottom right and if you touch it again, it goes back to the original position?

    I can place the rear view anywhere I want but I can't make in interective for you guys to click it while watching if that what you mean. I do want to do full width split screen but I recorded the rear in 720p to speed up rendering times on my computer so I couldn't stretch it out. I'll record both at 1080p next ride and give that a shot. After all the time I spend assembling the separate files into one video and matching the data it still takes 3-4hours for my computer to actually render all the pieces into a final product then another hour to upload to YouTube. Luckily I can do other stuff while it renders but it's still a long process even with my custom built computer.

    Is there an option to offload video processing to the GPU, that should speed up encoding significantly

    Yes but no with my current setup.

    Today's ride was me just going fast regardless of when others did or didn't want to pull through, got in a good workout with some solid efforts. There were several riders who tried to get away but I always took charge after a short rest to shut it down. There's one close call with a couple riders almost running into a Harley and one more indecent where the group was split whether or not to turn left with a white truck approaching. Ride ended with me leading out the group on a long 400 watt pull while I slowly ramped up the effort to in the 600 watts before waving the riders by.

    I like the split screen format.
