He's a way in and so far it's mostly sane. Given I've seen three or for questions on some of these topics this year I thought it'd be worth adding some links to them.
Myth #1: Wider Tires Are Slower
Jan Heine wrote:For almost a century, cyclists ‘knew’ that narrower tires roll faster. Some people realized that in theory, wider tires are faster due to their shorter contact patch, which deforms less as they roll. But the thinking was that in practice, the lower pressure at which wider tires must run limited their performance. If you wanted to go fast, you chose narrow tires.
That is what we thought when we started testing tires almost 12 years ago.....
