    Well, that and also I don't believe he did a static calibration check of his power meter against a known mass.

    If you want to estimate VO2Max with a ramp protocol, the ramp steps have to be the same size across the entire range of power or else the estimate will be off.

    If you want to estimate CP from max...

    What crank torque are you riding at?

    I just looked at my rides over the last month and my average crank torque appears to be ~20-23 Nm.

    Youse gotta problem wit dat? Cuz I got summin right here for dat problem, Mr. Noo Joisey.

    The accuracy of the mass you use depends, unfortunately, on the power meter you use. PTs measure at the rear hub and only report torque to the nearest inch-pound. Since you're measuring at the rear...

    Not quite that simple. Different people use different combinations of torque and cadence for the same ride. The same person uses different combinations of torque and cadence for different parts of...

    Most races in the UK are TTs. Very few are mass start. You may not but I (and many others) consider them to be racers.

    No, it's pretty flat -- most of the curvature is in the first few minutes (up to maybe 10 minutes or so). This means, btw, that small improvements in FTP act like a tide that raises all boats, even...

    In Berkeley it's hard for me to do a 1-hour ride without gaining 1200 - 1500 feet. That probably has some ability to explain why my average cadence and average speed are so much lower than yours (the...

    Why are you spinning up a hill at high cadence with elevated heart rate if you can climb the same hill at the same speed at lower cadence and lower heart rate?

    Least expensive will be used. Used means that specific recommendations about brand will be moot. You ought to be able to find a nice bike a couple or few years old for under your price limit, but be...

    Where in the Sunnyvale area can you ride for 7 hours and only gain 1400 feet in elevation?


    You don't have to drop to a smaller cog to slow down your cadence, you know. You can just slow down...

    Not everyone is a naturally-gifted athlete but there's no evidence that having a random person mimic the cadence of a naturally-gifted athlete is a key to improving their performance. There are lots...

    Hmmm. I don't usually look at low-end helmets (with one notable exception). Usually I look at helmets that racers wear in TTs. But I've done a couple of road vs. TT helmet comparisons. Never...

    Here's the secret: there are no secrets. You've been riding for 5 months. Ride more and things will work out in time. Your performance isn't being limited by pedaling efficiency.

    Not only is that not true, it's irrelevant. The most efficient cadence (in terms of gross metabolic efficiency) tends to be lower than what you're saying, and the research shows that when riding we...

    Presumably you bought one-sided pedals because you believed that accuracy doesn't matter. So there doesn't appear to be anything wrong.
