About time. If they incorporate this into a firmware update of my Edge 500 I should be able to give you my data. One thing surprises me though when they discussed pedal smoothness.sciguy said:Just released in version 2.40
Torque Effectiveness = (((P+) + (P-))/(P+)) X 100
Pedal Smoothness = (Pavg/Pmax) X 100
I'm really interested in see the variation in riders, especially say Froome and the not so speedy pros.
Pedal smoothness as they defined it is nothing more than the Racermate spinscan number divided in half. My experience has most riders with spinscan numbers in the 60-75 range. So, I would expect most to see a pedal smoothness number of 30-37.5, with the occasional rider getting into the 40+ area. How someone could ride with a PS of 10 would boggle my mind. I can ride with a spinscan on the trainer in the 90-95 area. It will be interesting to see how this translates into the road.Based upon our testing, PS values typically fall in the 10%-40% range.
I think we will see substantial correlation between TE and PS because I suspect that those who are "just pushing harder" (low PS) will also be doing more negative on the upstroke so will have lower TE's. We will see.
