Not aggressive, just coming from a different place. Possibly a place of frustration at seeing every newbie poster being told the answer to learning how to ride a bike is to buy high tech equipment.
If I buy myself a ladder, a set of screwdrivers and a voltage meter, does that make me an electrician?
Your reference to Tyler Hamilton is irrelevant. Tyler and his buddies have spent years skilling up, practising wet descents, cornering, riding in the drops, big bunches, experiencing everything the sport can throw at them. Like the final 8 in an Olympic 100 metre sprint, the difference between winning and losing at the top of the tree can be all in the head, or in half a watt of power somewhere. So yeah, its all about power for them.
The OP just wants to improve his strava time.
