    Thanks, lots of good info. I'll probably re-test in a couple weeks, but it doesn't sound like what I'm seeing is really out of line.

    1.27

    It wasn't close to steady state. I also don't feel that hour was anywhere close to my limits, just a couple intervals and a brisk pace.

    Really starting to look like I phoned in the 20min...

    Ok, I have about a months worth of data with my power meter. I haven't really done any structured training, just collecting and testing at this point. I've got a question on IF/NP/AP and FTP. Should...

    I got a wired Hollowgram SRM w/ PowerControl V for $460.

    Battery replacement and calibration is fairly easy to do yourself. And yes you can still buy batteries.

    I'd prefer a wireless, but even...

    I don't disagree that the pro would curb stomp a reporter, but this part is wrong.

    Total I spent for my Hollowgram SRM was ~$730. It is wired, which is kind of a pain (probably will end up drilling holes in my frame to route wires). But I got a powermeter and crankset for what a...

    Maybe it is because my club has a strong tri presence, but TT bikes and aerobars seem to be perfectly welcome on the group rides.

    Is it common for frames to get ruined in crit crashes? All the ones I've seen have been bar tape, shifters and occasionally front wheels.

    Edit: noticed Hida says it isn't common.

    Cleave, nice job, watched that 55/60 race.

    Did 4 crits this weekend, ready to upgrade to Cat4. At the very least it means I won't have to get up quite so early in the morning.

    All pack...

    I was at that event, though I didn't stick around for the later races. Big, wide streets, but many light poles on the edge of the road (without any hay bales). Didn't really think much of it at the...

    SPD are fine, I used them for a while before I switched to speedplays. The float on speedplays helps since I'm duck footed on one side.



    I've done it and the back wheel went up and out. I...

    Assuming the parade is at Pine Mountain Club, it is about 18 miles from the start. So you need to get there before 10 to avoid a delay.

    I guess we got a compromise. :/ Not sure I like having to modify my plans the day before a race. Starts are now from 7am to 8am. I might just leave closer to 8 than 7:30 then, I'm sure I can make up...

    Yeah, the late start is going to mean not having to get up at 4am, so I'm all for it. It looks like the weather will be nice. There is no doubt BA is better supported (also a much larger ride).

    Only got a bit misdirected at Las Virgenes & PCH (not the fault of route sheets, just missed the turn).

    Decker was hard, but the climb back to and up Stunt after over 90 miles of riding put me in...

    Are we talking real miles or trainer miles?

    My shorts usually start getting worn out after a year.

    Lol, I would include 9:59:59 as 9 hours, so I doubt I'll be passing anyone! Anyhow I'll be on a raw CAAD10.

    Just really slow and easy rides for the rest of the week.

    Sorry, I'm not separating out the trainer miles just for this thread.

    Almost all of these are not on the trainer.

    ~ 2,000 miles
    ~ 158k feet climbing

    Cool, this forum seems a bit more laid back than the racing 33 (tons of information in that forum), without the passive aggressive internet warriors on the 41.

    So if I'm 42 and just started racing is this forum an appropriate place for me to post? Calling me a master is hilarious, I'm more of an old junior.

    I never said or even implied it was the only way, or even the only thing you should do. And yes, hill work is tiring. If your only goal is to get up the hill with the least amount of energy, spin is...

    I don't see the OP talking about 15% grades, so I don't see how upping a gear (which would be what? 34/26) is all that unreasonable.
