Hard to say sometimes... I ride bikes a lot, but my heart runs fast. Like me resting HR is typically in the 80's or more. In an all-out sprint, I can see mid to upper 190's. I'm 52 and my "max" is in the 170's. I can be on a climb and as long as my HR is under 180, I can have conversations.
Some folks just run fast.
Anyway... great to hear the van is what Matt what hoping for.
