    Intervals and VO2 max

    I'm in week 7 of my 2nd Time Crunched Cyclist 10-week cycle (I did the intermediate commuter program both times). At this point, during various sessions I'm doing what TCC calls "power intervals" of...

    You'll probably be fine. The hardest part (for me at least) is the wheels. They most likely won't be properly tensioned and trued. However, it's a good skill to learn.

    OK, you said that you were completely ignorant on bicycle stuff, so I had to ask. :)

    I have the Motobecane Fantom CXX.

    You might consider whether you know enough about bikes to assembly one properly, so that it works properly and is safe to ride afterword. My B.D. bike, while great, did not come nearly ready to go...

    There are actually 3 sizes of SIM cards now. There are several ways that phones can be incompatible with each other, but it can work out that you can just switch a SIM from one phone to another. I...

    I agree. All the major carriers and most of the minor ones require a data plan for a smart phone. I recently did a pretty thorough search for cell phone plans that either had a really cheap/minimal...

    But no data plan is needed if you use open-source maps and an app that uses them (like Osmand, as I stated above).

    I'm using the free Osmand ap on my android phone. Similar to others, I build the route in Map My Ride on my computer, export it to a GPX file, and upload it to my phone. Osmand lets you display the...

    According to the Core Advantage book, cyclists (I think they're talking especially about road cyclists) shouldn't do crunches because their abs tend to overpower other core muscles. It's due to the...

    If the OP would come back and answer these questions, we would be in a better position to help. Otherwise, we're just riffing on a theme - which I think is what happens the majority of the time on...

    What I was describing measures the power at the rear wheel, not the force on the pedals. So, if in a given situation (grade, weight of rider, wind, etc.) it takes 250 watts at the rear wheel to go...

    You're correct. Power isn't linear with speed. However, using average power is conservative (i.e. it underestimates calories rather than overestimates) because the arithmetic average is less than...

    Here's an alternative thought. If you don't have a trainer already, you can buy one that has a published power curve. For example, Kurt Kinetic has power curves, which are also expressed as...

    I've been using a Kurt Kinetic fluid trainer for interval training. Kurt has a formula and graph that allow you to find power output from the speed readout on a bike computer. I've been recording...

    I think police departments are getting more sophisticated about when to proceed with a chase and when to end it. Hopefully, this gives individual officers the tools they need to make the best...

    I'm ok with it! :)

    Driving, in this case, 38 mph over the 55 mph limit is to me a lot like waving around a loaded firearm in a crowd. There really should be serious penalties if you do that.

    I would just do the regular commute at an easy pace each day, and not a weekend ride, unless your legs feel pretty fresh again by Friday. (They probably won't, but maybe you recover faster than I do...

    I didn't try them. I ended up not replacing the cones. Just reassembled the hubs with new bearings to see how it would go. The hubs were surprisingly smooth following reassembly, adjusted so there...

    IIRC, the book says that you should aim to keep the vast majority of the ride in the middle of the range. I don't think you need to worry about what zones that corresponds to. The upper end of the...
