    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    hi franco, some more questions hé :rolleyes: If you plug in the power you should see the following: left top corner: frequency(50/60hz) next to it voltage(110/220V) next rule below:software version number ( p28 or something like that) next : scale factor (default 100) next : body weight ( 75...

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    franco, You only have to plug in the power and you are ready to ride. However, it does not record data for later use (there is no connection for a computer ) it does show you the current speed, cadence, watts etc. I always disconnect the power after my sessions. There is no reason why you...

    Migrains

    This would be like some sort of cryogenic therapy would'nt it. Still, i rather like to prevent the headache in the first place. If you put to much stress on the sub-occipital and extensor muscles is that not a bit the same as muscle fatigue due to low energy in those musles? If it is...

    Peppermint inhaler

    It looks a bit like a 'vicks inhaler'. You know, the one you use when you have a bad cold or a stuffed nose. May be they just changed some or one of the esotheric oils (hope i spelled this correctly) with pepermint oils. In any case, one affect surely is likely to be able to breath a little...

    Migrains

    I also get headache after my races when i really gave it all. Always had to take some aspirin afterwards. But i don't like to do that. I will try your experiment with glucose before/during the race (looks promising). Hope this will help me to.

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    Hi Watoni, i'm wondering if your trainer (Cardgirus) gives you some power values? You say you use a 34x(23-29) is that a tripple? I don't have a tripple, so i was thinking of using a 39x(23-29) in the hope of getting there. I still have to do my first climb. The goal is to climb from Bedoin...

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    You can send your paper to this email btw went to your site and i suppose i would fit the recreational/fitness, sportif riders profile for which you provide a team coaching(?) but as an individual. Still i'm not quite sure if this is my cup of tea. have to think about it greets peter

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    Yes, you did tell me the flow was not accurate enough but still i had some hope (could live with a 10% deviation) but the way tomUK presented it, there does not even seem to be any logic in it not being accurate. If i would to calculate the speed outcome for the given power settings on a flat...

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    tomUK, this comes as a shock :eek: to me. You are now telling me that i will not be able to simulate the montoux on my Flow because i can not rely on the Wattage figures it gives me. So my trainer is practically useless for this kind of stuff. I'm stunned. You think the Power-Tap is accurate...

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    In belgium we had a great weekend of the 21 july so i could not reply sooner. I did calculate the power needed for the Km sections starting from Bedoin. The first time i tried it, i had to stop just before Km 10. Was very dissapointed. Next day tried again and went the whole way. Triumph! or...

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    In the manual they already stated something like that, but i have nothing to compare with, but it seems you did. Would you say there is a avg 10% deviation in power values between the different trainers?

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    Your wright frenchyge, going from 3 to 4 doesn't seem much but infact it does constitutes a 33% increase in speed. It seems i overlooked that one. I now have downloaded a profile from the Mont Ventoux the southern approach. I have a new problem ! How would i simulate this route on my tacx flow...

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    I agree, i was even thinking of changing the last gear in a 26 or even a 28. The point is that whatever gear you use, the avg power(Watt) you need to get to the top stays the same and the gear you use only devides that power you need per revolution. So with a small gear(21) you need less...

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    After being pointed out in the right direction by 'frenchyge' at analyticcycling i found out that the most significant factor in the calculations was the speed factor. If i wanted to climb at a speed of 3m/s i would need approx 200W, if i would climb at a speed of 4m/s i already need +- 270 W. a...

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    Wow, tks this is what i was looking for. So if i can hold an output of +- 200 W during 2 hrs i will be able to climb this mountain. How did you do this? did you go to that analytic site and punched some numbers (thumbs up for your)?

    Mont Ventoux Power calculation

    I would like to train for climbing the Mont Ventoux and i would like to do it in about 2hours. Now i have a tacx flow trainer wich gives me a watts indication. I would like to know how much watts i have to produce for about 2hrs to climb the Mont Ventoux. I already went to the analytic.com site...

    Simulating Tacx I magic for Tacx Flow

    Hi all, i wonder if someone has already done this or if its even possible? If i had the money i would have bought the I-magic with its terrain editor and so ..., but for now i have bought the tacx flow. Is it possible to read a data file from the I-magic trainer and convert it for use (although...

    Do You Use Muscle Rubs?

    Yes i use muscle rubs. I use the products from 'Sportsbalm'. I use the warming-up balsem, the refresh fluid and the muscle recover oil and i am pleased with it. The warming up really does give a warm feeling and protects against rain and cold although i do not know if it really heats the muscles...
