Default Re: Temperature and Air Volume

Ya know, I've had to ride my bike home from work when the temperature had jumped to 110 that summer here. And she was laboring on the hills. I could tell.

And I've ridden her on brisk 40 degree mornings, and she felt like she could kick butt and take names. I thought all along that air volume might play a part. This kind of supports my theory. It looks like there was almost ten cc of difference between those times. Thanks for the info.
