We read with interest the recent study by Jones et al. (2016) who found performance gains elicited by deceptive feedback were not sustained in a subsequent ride-alone time trial (TT). Although they employed a design somewhat similar to a study from our laboratory (Shei et al., 2016), we feel the discrepancies between their findings and ours are the result of several methodological differences.
