True. You'll probably have a real seat-of-the-pants discernible
gain in everyday riding.

The whole fixation with maximizing peak power, almost always at
the cost of mid-range, is often a net loss for real world riding.
Even manufacturers will sometimes go that route in an effort to
deliver market expectations. But not because it's the best
Only so that consumers -feel- they have more.
