    Hey waterrockets, are you in an Austin Bombers kit this year? I was in the ridiculous bright yellow Nelo's kit last night. I passed you a little too close on the left in the tailwind section, right?

    I don't mind not having it available on TV in the USA. Watching grainy feeds from overseas at the crack of dawn is one of the things that make cycling fans a tight nit bunch.

    Feed zone etiquette

    Ok, so twice this week I've seen a cyclist from one team taking a bottle from another team's soigneur. How does that work? Both times, the soigneur had a rider from his team in the same group as the...

    I would also like to know what category you're in, but I disagree that you should not sacrifice your race for a teammate if you're "just" in the 3's. That's what makes racing fun. It also shouldn't...

    I once went for a post-up, thinking I had won ( 30 seconds in front of the field). Turns out there was one other dude 17 seconds ahead of me who had been out there for forever. Luckily it was a mild...

    Nice. I'll put that 70% rule into play tonight. In the break I was diligently taking my pulls, because I really wanted it to succeed, but I think being amped up about the breakaway kept me from...

    3/4 Crit at the Driveway last night. 15 minutes in I see a break up the road that looks promising, so I get to the front and get ready to go. I jumped hard at the bottom of an incline and was able to...

    I just did some aero testing and played around with aerolab the other day for this first time. It's really neat. And I'm a parachute.

    Yep, just ride lots and do your 10 races. Fast group rides as much as you can. Check back with us in a year with your observations questions. At this point you'll be able to teach yourself more than...

    Is wired SRM still the way to go for people with small budgets? Or have they stopped making stuff (i.e. batteries) for them? Also, it looks like some of the Quarq are on Ebay for around $700 too...

    It started out as the Wired Comp from 2-3 years ago. They stopped making wired components so the last warranty issue I had to send it in for netted me some wireless internals, but the hub shell...

    So you guys know how the old Powertap hubs had carbon windows? So, it's basically a hub-shell with CNC'ed cutouts? Well, basically, every one of the the metal "bridges" going from one side of the hub...

    Workout went very well. HR was very responsive to power, but seemed to topout at a lower level for a given steady state effort (fitness gains, maybe, or perhaps just being rested). Legs felt good....

    Being able to complete the intervals at the right intensity is what matters most for training purposes. If you go out with the intention of doing 5 v02max intervals but fatigue stops you at 2.5, you...

    well, after 8.5 hours of sleep and 2 days of rest and easy riding, RHR was back to the normal range this morning, and I felt pretty good. Watts on the commute were about where RPE was telling me the...

    I'm really interested in HRV. Sounds pretty neat.



    Race anyway? Entry fee's been paid bro. I get what you're saying - it's just one metric in the bigger picture.
  19. How do you guys use resting heart rate on a day to day?

    I've been taking my resting heart rate every morning that I have a training day planned because Joe Friel told me to. Normal resting heart rate for me is around 41-42, and that's during a training...

    You have good stuff. If you need something stiffer then that's understandable. Buy some used Ksyriums (probably a million pairs on ebay) and race the heck out of them.

    IMO the bike is only there...

    My Joule 2.0 didn't create a ride file today, even though I could still see all the data on screen. I had to manually enter metrics into GC. Anyone ever had that happen before?

    Okay, now everyone just needs to calm down. This thread unfolded rather predictably given the original question, and there was good info in this thread.

    Glad you're getting a new bike now. Post...
