What do you mean by "appropriately lean weight"? I have noticed that the more I cycle the lower my goal weight becomes.

Is Peyton Manning at an appropriately lean weight? He is 2 inches taller...

I have a scale with body-fat measurement (Tanita InnerScan 50), but I am not convinced the technology they use for body fat measurement works. It seems to be more a measure of my hydration. It...

Looigi ...

You lost me on one part. At the top you say 1 watt work rate = 3.6kJ/hour. Later you say 100 watts = 1500 kJ/hour. If the top statement is true, then why wouldn't 100 W be...

A lot has changed since I last cycled!

On one hand, my first bike was an all-steel behemoth. I saved for 6 months to afford it, and built it myself from components.
