I'm still trying to figure out this WKO+ stuff... the data is simply overwhelming and the options are hard to decipher. But I finally got my new PT installed and found out that my original wheel is actually not dished correctly Also, the cassette offset on the PT wheel is different than my original wheel. Damn.

Anyhoo.. I think I will be training and racing with the PT. So if you want to find me during the races, I have a front Bontrager wheel and a rear DT swiss wheel with a PT.

I don't see a problem with mismatched wheels.

Enjoy your new implement of suffering.

Huge workout! Next week shoot for 11 Kj's. Up it 10-20% each week, and you'll be up over 50 Kj's in no time!

In all seriousness, have fun with that thing. I bought a used PT in November and it does change things... not necessarily all for the good.

Sure did. For 649$ I just couldn't resist. One thing I don't like, the spokes are not double butted. Other than that, it looks like a very solid wheel which I will also be using for CX in the winter.

FWIW - I have no intention of using my powertap for cyclocross. I have accidentally kicked everything located along any of the stays during remounts so many times it's pathetic. If the wiring harness/sensor was there I would ram it into the wheel for sure, or tear the wires up.

I would only race a powertap in cyclocross if:
1. It was wireless
2. It was the newer version that is waterproof - or at least more waterproof than my version.
3. It wasn't mine and I was under no obligation to repair or replace it WHEN it ended up trashed by sand, mud, water, impact, etc....

I can't begin to tell you how many times I hit the deck in cyclocross. Hell I flipped over the front wheel once just riding around pre-race.....but even frozen earth is softer than pavement in a crit.

On the other hand, if you ain't breakin ****, you ain't going hard enough

I'll remember this thread for the next time you're ragging on my for accidentally crashing my bike. Don't get me wrong, I've hit/bumped/smashed/wrecked more than my fair share of stuff on the 'cross rig... but I'm not sure it's that much more than you. I just crash more spectacularly.

Will do! I almost fell of the rollers yesterday trying to fiddle with the darn PT and forgetting I was on them.

Sweet!

Do you have the coggan/allen training with power book? there's also a pamphlet (floating around the 'net as a .pdf) that does a good job of breaking down training with power. I can email you a copy if you can't find it... the google group "wattage" also has it posted.

Your's are not only more spectacular, but your timing also seems to be much less fortunate.

I crash with style. Not quite recursive style. But a style nonetheless.
