    Hello all, Im 16 and just purchased the sigma 1200 wireless. Its very nice. I was very unhappy when i got off my bike and looked at my data. I road mostly flat grounds and rode 12 miles. It took me 1 hour and my average speed was 12.98mph. My max speed going down hill was 25mph. My problem is that i can get to 14mph but cant keep it. What can i do to keep a higher speed?

    First of all, how long have you been riding?

    I'm 20, I've been riding all my life and I now just started really training properly and everything...

    I have already becoming amazingly better by just browsing this forum and reading what people say, researching the internet, and trusting my body..

    Plus, ifyou are really serious about training, GET A HEART RATE MONITOR. Wow, one of the best purchases I have made in a long time.

    Click the search option for the site and type in questions, it is VERY helpful

    couldn't have said it better myself...seriously nothing is going to make as big of an improvement as just spending time in the saddle other things with help alittle, but you will see big changes if you just stay on your bike.
