» what did you have for tea? (Go to post)20-08-2016 @ 13:51 
That looks like my kind of food!

Last night we had chicken, broccoli and sweet potato with a miso/sesame/tahini sauce and rice. Quick and delicious.

If you're enjoying it you're doing something wrong!


A very dark place smashes me to pieces.

Glad you're enjoying erg mode. For me it was a game changer.

Steve said:Really enjoyed Sufferfest Blender tonight, although a bit disappointing my power targets for 20 second intervals (which were tough) were 50 watts lower than Cancellara's normalised power for 70 minutes!

Happy You don't win two Olympic time trials and multiple Paris-Roubaix and Flanders without putting out some serious watts. TV makes these guys look human but the truth is they'd drop most cat 1 racers in minutes, and cat 1 racers are f**kikg quick.

Nice work on the test Boar. I'd bet that's up to 250-60 in fairly short order. What's the BW at the minute?

I don't really understand your question about the connection to be honest. Does your laptop have ant+ built in? If not then you'd need a dongle. if it does have it built in then I didn't realise that even a thing!

I don't use power smoothing no. And no, your power will fluctuate. If you kept your cadence exactly the same it wouldn't, but any change in your cadence at the same resistance will change the amount of power you are putting out. Trainerroad has to detect that, then work out what to do to the resistance to keep your power back at your target and then communicate that back to the kickr which does it. This is the same on any smart trainer.

It really doesn't take long at all. Of course the more the power you are putting out fluctuates the more it has to adjust. You don't want this though. You want to be able to put out nice smooth power for prolonged periods of time.

If you're fairly fresh id do an ftp test. Otherwise I'd just put your old ftp in and do a sufferfest workout that you know you enjoy. 'Young' and 'Charybdis' are both fun and won't kill you

Make sure you have it set to erg mode and do a calibration first.

And yeah - I've survived local hero before but you need to be right on your best imo. I think some of the sufferfest vids are actually far too hard, in a macho, beat the f**k out of yourself way to be productive. I could have done more, but would have been in bits today. The best routines take you to the edge and hold you there. Many of the sufferfest vids will catapult you a mile over it.

Just finished a busy 5 days of training with 'Dana'. Those last two intervals hurt. Good workout though.

5 day TSS - 567.

I distinctly remember that box being a b**ch to move. The delivery driver refused to bring it to my flat.

I don't use the app, just trainerroad. I'm trying to remember if I needed to use the app to set it up. I definitely did it that way as I wasn't on trainerroad but you might not need to.

Will you use your phone to control it? I use my computer, iPad or phone depending on what I'm doing with the others. The other day I had olympics on the computer, cricket on the iPad and trainerroad and music on the phone. I'm not sure the point, I don't think I had my eyes open.

will my 11 speed bike just fit straight on there ?

also read today that segan is doing the mountain biking, unless it was some sort of clickbait joke.

I'm not sure if yours will come with a 10 speed or 11 speed cassette but it will fit either way. A 10 speed cassette uses a spacer.

Be religious about covering your headset and wiping it down after with a non sweaty towel. Even with a fan I was sweating at a rate of just under a litre every 30 minutes today (I weighed myself before and after). That can do damage over a while.

I would try good bib shorts, but again, that is about finding something that fits you personally. That said, I've never known someone who didn't absolutely rave about a brand or model of shorts once they've found some that do - it has that much of an effect (same with saddles really).

Lots swear by rapha or assos, but you'll pay a heavy premium. The problem is that you might buy 5 pairs before you find 'that' pair. I only ride Castelli shorts. I think they are called 'Free Aero Race', I've never paid more than 90 and they retail at 140 I think. I've had about 8 pairs over the years and currently have 3 pairs on rotation. I've heard good things about the top end DHB stuff that is wiggle's in house brand and am going to try some soon for commuting.

With the saddle it sounds like you need a cut out. Take a look at the specialised toupe. It's available in 3 different widths and a number of different 'levels' or weights and therefore prices. if it fits you, you'll love it. Again, never pay full price.

I'd post more links and info but it's not so easy on the phone.

The general rule is that you pay particular attention to your contact points, so feet, arse and hands. Get those right and riding a bike becomes a different experience entirely.

Well, if you like suffering like I think you do, I think you're going to bloody love it.

I hope you've got a big fan. You're going to need it.

For real?

How much?
» The Cycling Thread (Go to post)18-08-2016 @ 16:46 
You are indeed correct. Not allowed in mass start events.

I guess in triathlon you're allowed them if drafting isn't allowed and vice versa?

It makes sense, there was enough flat on that course to make at least a tri spoke helpful.

Fair play to Brownlee, that was one hell of a performance!
» The Cycling Thread (Go to post)18-08-2016 @ 16:37 
That's a very fair point. I'd assumed so, but never actually checked. I'll see what I can find.

I'm talking disc wheels Steve, not brakes. Disc wheels are definitely allowed in UCI....

Not allowing tri bars is quite funny, given that they're called tri bars!
