    I watched the NBC special for 2019 Kona. It looked like Jan Frodeno’s cadence was in the 70s. Am I wrong? If I’m not wrong, why does he use such a low cadence? This seems contrary to what everyone recommends.

    That’s not abnormal. There is no one-size-fits-all optimal cadence. I definitely do not include myself among the “everyone” who says there is!
