    Ankle Rub/Pedal Dimensions

    First off, I'm very happy with most aspects of my current fit. No pain or numbness anywhere, can ride as much volume as I like. That said I have always ridden a little toe out with occasional slight...

    In MI I always valued the ability of a wheel to ride through a pot hole and stay true. Every corner of every crit in the state has at least one.

    I'm changing from Powertap to Quarq (Riken) this weekend (If FedEx is on schedule). What differences should I expect to see?

    I believe that measurement at the pedal only uses force and cadence. Just like crank based power meters (eg Quarq, SRM). They do not use speed in their calculation of Watts.

    There has to be...

    Yep, that's what I meant. A lot bigger margin for error.

    I think a fair number of them are based on experience of riders who recover well. You can F up a lot of things in your training if one of your strengths is recovery.

    Makes sense. I've been setting zones based on testing indoors, they feel right.

    I live about 50mi south of Austin. Been cold and wet since Wednesday but nothing like the extreme rain & flash flooding we can get down here. Trying to run too many races on the same course? I don't...

    USAC didn't cancel, apparently City of Austin did due to park damage.

    I'm using a Joule GPS head unit. Did not see this issue on a trainer ride on 1/1, or an outdoor ride on 1/6.

    Agree, just thought it was odd that the speed signal was varying so much.

    Moved about 4 feet back from tablet/bluetooth. Didn't seem to do a whole lot, dropped to zero watts 9 times in 70 min. The other thing unusual is speed. At a steady 240W (except the 0's) speed graph...

    Interesting, was having issues with Bluetooth speaker as well. Rode outside w/o issues Tuesday so I'm sure it isn't the Powertap.

    Looked back at several files and did not have this issue on 1/1 then it appeared on 1/2. I do have a Bluetooth speaker for Tablet/Wifi close. Another suggestion that I was given was to move away from...

    PowerTap dropping to zero 10 to 12 times per hour since I move indoors :notamused:

    Interesting question. Something missing from a lot of these study summaries is a measure of the quality of the high intensity work. My experience has been this goes up because you are fully...

    That's a good point. Most of these studies have a selection bias, athletes with naturally high VO2. Don't think there is a magic percentage, it boils down to how well you can recover? Take an 8 hr...

    Yes, over the course of a season you will find that you feel the same but are significantly faster on your Zone 2 rides. Requires a lot of patience.

    Free day!, equivalent to a race, there are no rules you can ride as hard as you want. Make sure you recover well then go back to polarizing your "training days".

    You can't do enough volume in zone 4 to fully develop aerobically, and you will never get enough recovery to make your zone 4 work really hard/fast. You end up pretty good at going 23mph, a dead end...

    If you keep volume down and mind your recovery I think there are benefits from subing a squat workout for a sprint workout even during the season. Again, think of it as a higher zone workout.

    Some anecdotal stuff. I was a much better crit rider when I was lifting, squats, deads & bench. In season training and wear and tear from racing kept my body mass in check.
