    Left Right Power Analysis

    One of the reasons I have Alex Simmons as one of my favorites on my blog is how he writes in a way that even a simpleton like myself can understand and yet present some things for us to consider especially concerning the trend is Left/Right power readings as live data and as uploaded data. I...

    Pre Sale - Static Torque Test

    Thanks to a member here I have a potential buyer already for my current Powertap SL+ wheel and even though he has already emailed me and expressed a desire to purchase this used wheel I wanted to give him some comfort about this used wheel set. It also gave me an opportunity to try something a...

    Bike Carrier - Car

    I am thinking about upgrading my bike carrier this year, which is a truck I bought back in 2004 with intention to tow a tournment ski boat and then I sold the boat in 2005 so I never really got to use the truck long term for the intention. With gas costing me about $70 US about every 11 days or...

    Power Sensor ANT+ Head Unit

    With a few other companies in the news as adding to the power meter market like Rotor, StageOne, Brim Bothers along with the current mix it is surprising that there are not more options also coming out for a solid head unit. The following is pure personal opinion and experiences are no doubt...

    Quarq - Garmin 800 Question

    I have been using Powertap with the Garmin 800 for a while now and yesterday was my first experience with setting up the Quarq and Garmin 800. I did some searching last night on vast sea of information on the web and did not find what I was looking for so I thought I would check with members...

    Flo Wheelset - First Impressions

    I received my order of Flo 60's a couple of days ago and added my first impressions of the wheels on a blog entry yesterday. This is not a review, but I thought I would add give those of you that have not yet heard of this fairly new business. It will be a few weeks before I can actually get...

    Powertap SL+ Hub - Service?

    This past week training indoors my PT SL+ showed a 529 torque offset value on the Garmin 800 as I would use the "calibrate" button just before training. Even at the end of the intervals I would try to calibrate again, but still would have the 529. This particular hub has always shown a little to...

    Bill Black's HOP

    I must be a sick puppy because I am getting excited about fall and winter training indoors. I primarily train indoors year round anyway, but like getting that odd craving for pizza I now have this fixation on HOP. HOP works out great for my weeknight schedule since I am usually limited to about...

    Indoor Training - Salty Mayhem

    My weekday training is indoors year round. Just seems to be my only option with my work schedule and living in an area where cycling is difficult even at a recreational level, much less training. I suspect all that frequent this thread for training have experienced the amount of sweat generated...

    Wahoo Fitness App - Importing to WKO+

    This post will probably only be of benefit to a very small percentage of folk training with power, but since I waffled around last night struggling with how to import data from the iPhone Wahoo Fitness app to WKO+ for over an hour this may help some other poor soul that may also have the same...

    Powertap Torque Test - Garmin 800

    Now is a good time to check the new PT for a quick a torque test, but I must admit I was a little hasty in the process today and used some inaccurate measures and came up with a 5% difference so I will come back in a couple of weeks and give it another try with hopefully better methods and...

    Contour GPS - My Opinion

    For those considering a camera for cycling I posted my opinion to the new Contour GPS video camera and a potential solution when using the vented helmet mount to increase stability. I am not good at doing reviews and I do not have a lot of comparison experience with other cameras so consider it...

    Location of FT Test

    In my area and to my understanding of the best roads to cycling in a 50 mile radius of where I live are the following choices. 1. A highway that is mostly uphill gradient and will allow a 20 minute uninterrupted stretch of road before coming to the next town. The downside to this location is a...

    Stomp Test Results

    For a number of weeks I have been skeptical of my power output numbers based on a particular route that I am familiar with the results and data in WKO. Like today climbing some short hills and having to come out of the saddle and yet my cpu would barely break 100 watts and then toward the summit...

    States Pass Laws for Cyclists

    I thought this was an interesting article on USA Today. I am just posting for your reading pleasure and I was not surprised by the feedback comments at the bottom. Most of us have been out there long enough to know many feel as if we should be cycling indoors. :) At least in this case...

    Testimony

    I am not too excited about posting this, but if it were to be of help to someone than it is well worth exposing who I am. The link will take you to a blog entry where another link to an eMagazine article is available for my testimony to my past use of steroids and dealing steroids that spanned...

    Physiology Explanation

    I did a group ride on Saturday that is still baffling me. I started the ride really struggling with the sensation of my hamstrings and right calf knotting up and as if my quadriceps were going to cramp during the first 10 miles of our group ride. My breathing was very labored and my heart rate...

    Bar End Plug for 31.8

    I got a Pro Vibe Carbon road bar that is 31.8 all the way down (no taper). The one thing I overlooked before the purchase was the availability of 31.8 plugs. I did see this on a Google search, but are the lock rings my only option or can I cleanly insert more wrap into the bar end and use a...

I have a 9-spd setup with the PT Pro with a 53/39 crank & 11-23 cassette, which I use primarily on the trainer through the weekdays and on occassion when I know my route is going to...
