Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Ive seen my resting heart rate at just over 200bpm with no activity whatsoever.
Yes...i have a heart issue that needs resolving.
Although its not like that all the time...just randomly can happen.

My blood pressure is always very good.

Only because I'm an EMT, I've had my vitals taken many times.
resting HR 78
resting BP 124-6/80

This is not a definite thing, but your healthy maximum heart rate is 220-age.
The 220 can vary on some factors.
Many things can alter a blood pressure, like smoking, temporarily. Take your BP after a cig and it is a lot higher than your resting.
People that exercise frequently, especially long distance runners tend to have a lower heart rate. Normal for an adult is 60-100 bpm. Long distance runners can run in the 50's

RHR = 55-ish
BP - 115/70

My pressure is okay, but I need to ride more and for longer to get the resting HR down.

Sorry to hear about your heart, sounds like rhythm problem.

One of the old guys i ride with is in his 80s (i'm in my 30's), has had knee surgery and a pacemaker put in during the last couple years. he's really slow but we still ride together and enjoy each others company anyway.

i had a problem due to a bad valve & my resting rate was up over 130 bpm, in the end i couldn't even mow the lawn and got head spins a lot. had my aortic valve replaced on rather short notice as it toast. a few days after surgery was sitting in my hospital bed, feeling like **** but watching the clock, listening to my new artificial valve clicking along at about 60bpm. best move i ever did was getting that defective, leaky assed valve replaced. about 7 months after surgery i was able to successfully ride my first century - happy would be an understatement! resting HR down to about 53bpm.

(edited to fix typo)

Wow, that is awesome. Did you spring for the Dura Ace valve or stick with good old Ultegra?

(seriously though, that's amazing)

Thats great you got it fixed. Sounds like a success too.
Id love to get my worked out. Its what they call Tachyarrhythmia...fast heart beat. Ive only gotten up to around 200bpm but some people experience 400bpm. Thats amazing and sounds scary as hell to me.
Its a horrible feeling when it happens and has ****ed up things in my life numerous times. Unfortunately i cant get insurance coverage on it and there is no way i can pay for such an expensive fix.
If i move back to Japan i can get it fixed though. Which may happen in a year or so. Thank God for the socialized medicine they have there. Sorry America cant follow suit. At least now.
