"I'd say this happens 100% with Lycra Warriors..." is just one example.

So we're comparing Armstrong to the "average person"? Not to, say, elite athletes? Wow, great comparison. Coyle was and is a shill for Armstrong, he's not thought of very well by other...

Go with what feels right! Right around 90 is pretty average, but I wouldn't change gears based on just a number in front of me. Some are more predisposed towards a higer cadence (the "spinners")...
