      Good day, I followed the Youtube channel for some time now, and felt like I can say something here regarding heart rate. As you mentioned, it is very individual. I am 35 years old, my resting heart rate is 43, blood pressure 108/64, just did a race yesterday, avg heart rate 193 max 201 over 1hour and 20min. This has always been the case with me, I have a very high active heart rate from when I can remember using my first heart rate monitor.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I set my max heart rate on my Garmin as 215, thus having a reading of heart rate zone 5 for very long times.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      For extraordinary bike, extraordinary shifters.. Maybe gevenalle shifters? There should be opinion that is compatible with mountain bike derailleurs and brake calipers. About handlebar, I don't know at all. It's all personal preference I think.. I did not like the drop handlebar on my merida cyclocross, because it was difficult to reach to brake levers from drops. So I replaced it with a more classic curve handlebar.. ritchey evo max comp. Now I can brake when on drops. But I get little bit tingling on hands on longer rides.. 3 hours and above.. when mostly on drops.
      That's all I know.. Sorry that I'm not much help.. While it seems very fun project to do. :)

      Hi there, mine is about 43 bpm. My blood pressure usually somewhere about 118/82, so higher than yours, but still low. It is very individual, but I would check the Echocardiography, if I was you. In my case, the only disadvantage of having low pressure is dizziness whan I switch from low positions in yoga, to standing positions.
