    The solution is definitely science-based. Especially compared to current scientific theories on cramping which appear to be mostly driven by trendiness.

    It will definitely shake up the sports science world. Especially when it becomes apparent how sports scientists missed something relatively simple that elegantly explains everything that neither of...

    The real cause of cramping has been figured out but not disclosed yet pending publication or due to IP/$$$ issues. Needless to say, neither of the two schools of thought are correct but one is more...

    I ordered a bulk supply of smaller diameter Rema patches but they were too big for road tubes. I misplaced them and made my own patches by cutting up valve-torn tubes into little 5x5 mm squares after...

    I consider it my lucky day when I find a discarded tube on the side of the road. I'm even tempted to pick up ones I see during races.

    Take an un-patchable tube and cut it into little squares to use as patches. You have to abrade one side of them to remove the mold release first.

    There are actually ergometers now that can truly simulate climbing. You can actually do all your training on them and not ride outside for months or even years. Yet when you do, it feels like you...

    Other people, myself included, have had the same thing happen to them when using their credit card with UK vendors. Rumor is that some UK credit card processors were hacked. In my case, it was for a...

    I removed all the donuts, cleaned the cable with water and alcohol, and then I molded blobs of ShoeGoo onto the cables. So far, they haven't moved since they are bonded in place. They're not as quiet...

    I always changed them myself. Even in the PCV. I replaced SRM crank batteries less frequently than people replaced their entire Quarq cranks.

    I've been using SRMs for 15 years and have never had to send one in for service of any sort.

    This happens to me in the early season when I ramp up the hours and am a bit overweight. When I have a few extra pounds, there's no place for the flab between my perineum and inner thigh to go so it...

    OK, so it's just 50 riders each though bikereg lists the combined field sizes as the individual field limit.

    I just checked the Battenkill registration page and they have 5 fields of Cat 5 35+ with 250 rider limits each, 4 fields of Cat 5 45+ of 200 each, and 3 fields of Cat 5 <35 of 150 each. Crazy...

    Power is just braking torque * flywheel angular velocity. If the virtual course is steeper or your virtual self is heavier, the software simply figures a slower virtual road speed for you. The power...

    At least some RacerMate software has errors in their physics. They calculate gravitational potential energy as m * h and sometimes fail to convert between linear and angular velocity.

    Yeah, I know...

    In other words, it's like fiat currency except without the inflation and manipulation.

    This is normal for all trainers with low inertia, which is pretty much all of them. When you stand up, the increase in force accelerates the rear wheel and little trainer flywheel at a rate far...

    I haven't noticed a greater level of fitness or participation at races that would indicate some kind of revolution is in the works.

    Roundness of the wheel and tire made a big difference the one time I had to deal with this problem.
