    I'm talking my road bike on a trainer (either Qubo Fluid or Kurt Kinetic RnR, depending on which one is available as my wife uses the trainers too). No problem for me to hit 20mph outside and stay...

    This is all really strange. For me, outside, 20mph does not come close to the level of effort I need to ride 20mph inside. Not even close. That's on the power/speed area. On the heart rate area,...

    Anything above 85F and I'm miserable, and I live in Florida! My arms and legs were getting cooked to the point of bad rash and burns so now I use skull cap, arm and leg coolers. From late May to...

    Thanks all for your comments.

    The last group ride I went to (before my failed workout) we were hitting well over 21mph with some pulls at 26mph for well over 10 min and I was feeling fine. Now, I...
  5. Dealing with setbacks and the importance of rest

    Well, sooner or later it was bound to happen.

    I took an FTP assessment this past Tuesday (280) and was feeling pretty good since I felt I had left something in the tank. Instead of properly...

    It's TrainerRoad's virtual power approximation. The trainer is an Elite Qubo Fluid.

    The last workout I did (yesterday) I averaged 84 (power) against a target of 145. My average HR was 140 for the whole 1.5 hr session. (Previous workout the avg power was 69...) I think it's low,...

    I lean that way too. My problem is that at 56-75% FTP, my heart rate is WAY higher than my LTHR Z2 range. Since I'm in level I base (per TrainerRoad's traditional base program) I should be at...
  9. Please Help a New "Roadie": Power, LTHR, TrainerRoad, and weekend club rides

    So, I went ahead and bought a road bike. And it's red.

    The speed/cadence sensor is installed, and along with my HR monitor it pairs to either a (also red) Garmin Edge 500 (when I'm riding), or to...

    Update: Today I received a Garmin USB ANT Stick and a Wahoo ANT+ key. I tested them both, and now I can use TrainerRoad with my PC (with the USB stick) and my iPhone (with the Wahoo key). It works...

    No tire slippage at all that I have noticed. Yours and your bike's weight ensure there is always a solid point of contact between the back tire and the roller.

    I bought this one. This is my first trainer ever, so I don't know much, but here's what I like about it:
    1) It's fairly quiet (with slick tires).
    2) Easy to move around and store.
    3) No fiddling...

    Update: I took advantage of Performance's Thanksgiving sale and bought a 2014 Fuji Roubaix 1.0 LE. Today I went out on a local club ride for about 30 miles. I told the group that this was my first...

    I understand. My point is that there is no room for both sensors (the existing wired sensors on my bike, plus the Ant/Bluetooth wireless ones). So if I change the sensors to use TR as the head...

    Thank you Trevor for your response.

    Does the software work with (or are there plans to support) iPads? Looks like you need either a Mac or a PC to run the software. I have a PC, but I'm hoping...

    I might also switch out the suspension fork for a fixed fork, and take out the Armadiilo Crossroads 700x38 for some 28-32 slicks at high pressure. I really don't need the suspension for the type of...

    What makes road bikes faster

    I've had my trusty '06 GF Kaitai 29er for 8 yrs now, and would like to get into road cycling to participate in a few charity rides throughout the year. I know I could cover pretty much any distance...
