    in case some data might help others, here's my PMC from May 1st. I didn't have a good spring, either, so by May 1st I'd dropped my FTP to 260w. Note this was a very rough estimate just based on...
  2. I had a similar case recently, with minimal...

    I had a similar case recently, with minimal riding in May, then nearly zero riding in June + July. With leg/hip issues, my suggestion is to err on the low side, to avoid going too deep too soon. As...

    as shovel said. Specifically for me, I end up use it when it's been a while (too long) since I've done an FTP test or any long interval. If my HR is too low then I know I'm going too easy. HR's...

    I'd go a little farther just to try and make sure people get how important this is - autopause basically invalidates the accuracy of any data for any given time period, during which autopause took...

    yea that's a pretty huge CTL, and also it looks like OP had negative TSB for a good 3-4 months straight. without any winter base to sustain it, I'm surprised he's not ready for a 3 month nap right...

    I remember the cadence data from my powertap being pretty sketchy. Granted it's been a few years. I think it's pretty different, anyway, since the PT's accelerometer isn't directly measuring crank...

    I believe someone from Quarq mentioned on the Wattage list that the feature is intended as a backup for when the magnet is not available - perhaps it's not perfected for very low or high cadences....

    Aha! Thanks very much, I'd missed that option somehow. London's our destination for a few days, then we'll be heading west to the Bath area - I haven't started researching that leg yet, though :)

    I love those wheels. As training wheels they've been rock solid for me for years. I've even used 'em off road with 'cross tires a few times.
  11. Evoc bike bag on Eurostar from Paris to London - reality?

    Does anyone have firsthand experience bringing a large bicycle bag (like an Evoc, which measures 135 x 80 x 38cm) on a Eurostar train, between Paris and London?

    Eurostar's website tells me that...

    I don't have firsthand knowledge, but I wouldn't bet on it. Sidewalks in westchester are pretty much clear (because they've been shoveled and sanded and salted), but there's still snow left on lawns...

    You need something to seed the generator. I've never written a lib function for this but iirc, some common textbook examples are a) mouse cursor input and b) microphone input. I doubt lower level...

    The spec on the enve says 28c is the maximum tire size - and I'd take that with a grain of salt, since one manufacturer's 28c is not necessarily the same as another's (plus rim width, tire pressure,...

    That's awesome, thanks for posting your experience. Do you speak spanish and if not, is it much of a problem? I'd guess having a friend to stay with makes a big difference.

    Rumor says (and logic dictates) that part of this deal is that Stages will develop a dual-sided meter.

    compared to the early season prospect park/central park races, and especially as a cat 5, the trip to Bethel is worth it IMO.

    All male racers start as category 5. Women start as cat 4. Bigger races will sometimes split the categories up in to age groups too (e.g. they might have a cat 5 field, and a cat 5 35+ field), but in...

    The videos at the stadium are at Rentschler field, up near Hartford, CT. Those are mostly mid-week training races (Tuesday nights, iirc). The Bethel races he himself promotes are much closer to NYC,...

    err, you'll want to have quite a bit of race experience (including on a FG), before even trying to qualify for RHC.

    Pug gave you the gist of it - check bikereg.com. Local racing starts early...

    Your first stop should probably be http://westchestercycleclub.org/. I suspect from the tone of your question that you've never raced or done any large group rides. WCC is a great local club...
