22 Oct 2009 9:54 PM posted in Wind Speed and Power Estimates

A great addition to the power estimates would be a calculation to factor in wind speed. I know that from experience, a strong headwind up Norton Summit can add a minute or two on to my times. I know there are a lot of variables including the size of each rider, position of the rider etc and the fact that the climbs do not always head in a single direction but there must be some sort of formula to ball park how many watts would be required to overcome a 20km/h headwind riding at 20km/h for instance. Thoughts?

[quote=Frank Smith]Jason[/quote] I'm a bit surprised that someone strong enough to race C grade or higher would use them, but perhaps you have worse grades there. I haven't found anything that I can't get over with 39/25, but I'm certainly standing and grinding hard at 20%, which is about the steepest I've tried. Perhaps I'd get up those sort of grades faster with a compact :-) Compact crank never held me back in C grade here in Adelaide![/quote] I have the same bike as Frank with 50 - 36 chainrings. I have found the compact system a bit impractical as there is a huge jump when changing from big to small eg before a climb but do love the 36 chain ring for the steep inclines, and recommend it for someone just starting out. I will probably change to 39 when my original chain rings wear out. However, I wasn't aware that the quality of a rider is determined by the equipment he or she uses. Like Frank, I manage to race with a compact system and have only spun out my biggest gear in a sprint once.

If you build up a reasonable base fitness during daylight savings, you can get through the winter on a relatively small amount of training. I got throught the road season (albeit in the lower grades) last year on the indoor trainer during the week and either racing on Saturday or long training ride on Sunday (eg 100kms). Probably about 6-8 hours a week. Just make the hours that you do ride count...

Are broken spokes that common an issue? Maybe I don't do enough k's.

I think the shaving of one's legs is used as an effort to gain a psychological edge. Shaved legs (assuming they are not fat legs) show more muscle definition. This is probably similar to the reason body builders shave their chests. l
