A friend of mine finished fourth in her age group in the world duathlon (run, ride, run). She has two bicycles that differ along several variables, but she isn’t sure which one will be best for the next season. How could she find out?
Write the methods section for an experiment.
See later post.
Here is what i come up with. will you see if it make sense?
Recruit few random women from her age group.
Randomly divided them into 2 groups
Assign each group one of the bicycle.
Let the two groups compete and see which group perform better.
Why not have them later switch bicycles and race again?
