    Default Power Tour

    If you havn't been on the Saris/Cycle Ops site lately you may want to take a look at what they have going during the Tour.

    www.saris.com (then click on power training tips to the left)

    I for one greatly appreciate how unselfish they are with putting all this education on their web site - at no charge.

    Friday my dear - "My" baby arrives Friday.

    And your safe. Landscaping should be done by September (aka Packer season)

    WOW for the Tour de France to include watts this year in conjunction with HR when discussing the Stage. As Cheeze mentioned, www.cycleops.com follows every stage with articles and video... Robbie Ventura is talking about KJ's today....

    My baby arrived this morning about 10:00AM. The delivery was went smooth and was totally painless. Two employees from Saris assisted with the delivery.

    He is fine but on a monitor. The right number of features in all the right places: one saddle, two bar ends, four feet (six toes) and one knob.

    He really likes to take rides. Just have to remember not to work him too hard.

    My wife and I spent the past few days setting up a room for him in the basement. If today is any indication, we are really looking forward to all the fun in the months and years to come.

  8. Default liking cycleops bikes?

    for those of you who have the 300,,,how are you liking it/them? I believe I have a new gym here talked into them,,,,but the owner has done some research and found problems with the power meters ramping up.

    have any of you had this problem?

    thanks

    I've been out in the field with them, and ride one here in the house... I have not experienced any 'ramping' up of the PowerTap... They have it down, I've been in the quality control lab with the engineers.
    If your facility has any concerns, contact Robb Zbierski directly at Saris Cycling Group/ CycleOps...
    You can also read Training and Racing with a Power Meter by Hunter Allen/ Andrew Coggan.. They do some comparisons between power measuring devices..

    I heard a passing comment from the owner of a club with PT 300's in Palo Alto, CA that the bikes seem to be pretty trouble free, but occasionally the computers flake out and require a firmware/software reload. He didn't seem to think it was too much of a hassle.

    thanks for your comments. I hope he still decides to get them .
