    Eh, velocity is just the integral of acceleration. Depending on sampling frequency calculating from the secant of acceleration and measured torque could very well be more accurate than averaging...

    I'm too lazy to look up geometry tables, but from pictures those track ends look like they're on the short side.

    I support this. I was trying and failing to come up with a non snarky way of saying the feature I would want is working on android.

    Oh hey, that's my home track.

    Bring shoes, helmet, and pedals. You could wear tennis shoes and borrow a helmet if you want, but if you already own those things, there's no reason too. No need...

    I wonder if anyone has evaluated wheel/frame gap at ero or similar. I bet it's frame specific, and I wouldn't be surprised if it depends on the tire as well. I suspect there's less penalty being too...

    123 guys racing much more aggressively thank 3's and 4s seems pretty typical for road races, crits, and track to me. I think it's influenced a lot by fear of being dropped/having confidence in your...
