Don't tell us your problems. Ever heard of a book store?

Power Meters like Powercranks don't improve performance one bit. But at least with a Power Meter you can see yourself not improving because of it

Go knock yourself out. They are not vapourware like Brim Brothers.

Not capable, you were offered the chance to travel to test your theory but declined. Stop hiding behind petty excuses.
The technology has been available for years???? Available to whom? From the link

is a proof of concept product that demonstrates the abilities of AXIS technology. This product is only sold to research institutes at this stage. although, if you have an application where the AXIS crank can add value to your product, let us know! All bicycle power measuring devices available in todays market measure net power.
Vaporware is a product announced but not available in the marketplace. Axis cranks seem like vaporware to me (unless one is a research institution, which leaves me out). Fergie, do you ever read what you link to? Or, if you read it, it is not clear you understand what you are reading.

Thanks. It kind of puts things in perspective, discussing an imaginary pedalling technique that utilises equipment that is banned. What is the point, Coapman?

Yup I have force vector studies dating back to the 70s. The link is for a product I first laid my hands on in 2011.

I could get a set sent down here in days. Not my problem if you or Noel are not prepared to put your money where your mouths are. Maybe if you marketed on facts and figures rather than delusion and hype you would sell more. Heh, maybe not because both your causes (Gimmickcranks and Short Cranks) have been sunk thanks to the well performed research available.

Pardon my mostly-off-topic question for CoachFergie - you mentioned being happy about the ban for lycra shoe covers on indoor tracks, that you'd been leery of them as a commissaire (sp?). Could you elaborate on that? Just curiosity on my part.
