Steve, I'm not making fun of you man. You need to stick to one goal. The best cyclists in the world can't do many pull-ups because they are built to cycle. 28 is a lot for you. I'd stick to being happy with what you have. Theoretically the better you cycle the worse you should become at pull-ups.
you really think this is excessive? He's racing at a high level and then has one or two pet moves he's like to work on. I've met plenty of national caliber cyclists who rock climb, this goal is really a paired back version of that type of cross training. I say NBD, go for it...
