Doesn't say anything about how they use a SRM to measure the improvements in performance.

Thought you power boys say heart rate is irrelevant if you have power?

Anyway, speaking of British Cycling and power:
Yes, my friend, the WATTBIKE is an excellent device.coapman said:

Surely not?In discussions with BikeRadar, Verve said that some riders might be surprised by the difference in figures between the InfoCrank and other power meters, with the latter reading significantly lower in some of the company's head-to-head tests. Verve claimed this is down to the inaccurate nature of other units, which rely on complex mathematical models to estimate wattage, rather than exact readings.
One can only hope that it was either a reporter error, or a marketing type who doesn't know what they are talking about.swuzzlebubble said:

And I doubt it'll have anything useful that veloclinic hasn't already proven existed in the 1970s or is easily trumped by GC + his own work.
Cause of crash????CoachFergie said:Riding your bike, diet, recovery, having goals, finding ways to learn to cycle better will help you improve as a cyclist.
A power meter is one way of measuring that improvement. The Garmin Vector is a good way of doing this. As are other models of power meters. There are some excellent reviews a few posts back.
What is the advantage of having anything on the bike during the race that would distract from the task at hand? Sort of like texting and driving isn't it? We get away with it most of the time but when we don't, disaster.twothirds said:Agreed. Could've only been a speedometer, or heart rate monitor. Or just looking at his front tire because it's really fun to look at the tread go round and round.
