He doesn't believe in them, and then we convinced him they work or he just wanted to make sure he was duped just like the rest of us.

Seriously though, we all know a P & J sandwich is nice and good but who is really going to make them and package them up so they don't get squished and are easy to eat on the road? Yea, some of you's, great for you! I prefer either the wasteful, job employing, economy boosting pre-made bars and gels, maybe not for those reasons at the beginning of this sentence but because I'd rather post a few posts on my plethora of forums and blogs than go make the P & J sandwich or whatever I might otherwise eat if I didn't want to do other things.

Do they work? Well they keep many people from bonking at the very least. Do they improve performance? Well if they keep you from bonking and keep you out riding, I think they do. Your millage may vary of course if you don't eat them when you should, same for the P & J sandwich though.

I don't get what is so confusing. I said I don't believe they are as effective as advertised, however I want to know from any users how effective they are, if at all.

But that's how internet forums go, right? 50 % of the posts are something useful, the rest are people trying to be smart.

Reading comprehension and Logic ....

"I do not believe in them"
means - "I am not convinced that they DO work"
or "I do not currently believe that they work"

"I believe that they do not work"
means - "I am convinced that they do not work"
or "I might change my mind if you have some really good proof that they do work"

ya gotta understand what the words really SAY, and not what you'd like them to say!
