i discovered that some of the explanation for the surprisingly low numbers i got from one of my bikes is partially explained by leg asymmetry. my dual sided meter was only transmitting the left side...

i checked out the aeroweenie calc with data from four laps around the oval, each separately, and then 4 miles back and forth on a dead flat road. there's a pretty strong crosswind on the back and...

they're also very close to what most calculators suggest for being on the hoods on a "normal" road bike - not a TT or super aero integrated thing with super skinny tires and deep dish wheels and all...

yeah a 3% incline forever... not so hard to slow you into the overheat speed or require a granny gear, but not so fast that you're fighting drag for every mph. seems like a rare kind of...

that's really interesting; i don't know that i get much adrenaline from cruising at 20 on the flats (especially with a beta blocker haha) but the cooling may be a HUGE factor. i overheat easily.

beta blocker + ace inhibitor + angiotensin blocker + antiarrythmic (flecainide). pretty much the kitchen sink.

the power data pretty clearly corresponds to the speed, and matches whatever model bikecalculator uses, and while the meter could absolutely be off 5% either way, i'm not sure how/why it would be off...

thanks for the link - iíll check it out! i am quite certain that iím not very aerodynamic or low resistance - trail jersey, hairy legs, very worn 32mm tires, endurance geometry, on the hoods. here...

really? iíd like to see some data on that, the sources iíve used mostly agree with this. 240w = 20-22mph:

right, probably analogous. on flat ground you have that little tiny reduction of resistance every time the pedal goes around that Carbonfiberboy referenced, and you can also coast or cruise at a...

here's a real world example. one week apart - no meaningful change in fitness or weather. the grade is a little less (and slightly variable) than my hypothetical, but the average power and heart rate...

interesting! seems like the scientific jury is out on whether inertial load truly affects performance, but there seems to be some consensus around a psychological impact at least.

why does 240w not always feel like 240w?

specifically, climbing vs flats. not due to fatigue or time of day, this is for me a universal phenomena:

physics (calculated via bikecalculator.com of course) tells me that going 6.5mph up a...
