    Knowing the algorithm would help us evaluate its worth.

    Compared to what? A real bike? Seriously a lot of the engineering in software and firmware is intellectual property. Doubt that we would be given that. I think a preprogrammed simulator is probably the only way to get a "hill" or head wind reading and then constraints and finite elements would need to be factored in creating a need for forensics and evaluation after to determine just what was true of the simulation. It is almost aerospace at that point. Does overload training as we know it need to go that far geek?

    I don't understand why it should be a secret.

    It's their property I guess they feel a need to secure that like most untangable things kind of like Cokes recipe or satilite frequency codes.

    Understandable if they stumbled on to the formula for the true meaning of life, but it's the distance calculation on a bike that goes nowhere for god's sake...

    LOL Devine principles and cycling! The bridge has been found! Alas a new theory to crusade for a session at WSSC.
    I will ask for a better answer to both questions. 1) what drives the quotient and 2) why do we not let on this info?

    You may find that they're too embarrassed to share it.

    Do you have a "reasonable guess" as to what it may be?

    No but I'll bet there's no calculus involved.

    I bet it has something to do with an apple of medium size and how fast it can be lifted one meter into the air.

    Hi; if the flywheel diameter is 15.5 inches that makes the circumference 48.71 inches. I get 9 full rotations of the flywheel each time one of my feet goes through one revolution. It takes me 20 pedal revolutions to make .1 Keiser. So I figure 1 keiser covers 87,678 inches, or 1.384 miles. So if the flywheel was sitting on the ground I would travel 1.384 miles for each keiser. Now on a normal bike you wouldn't get 9 full rotations of your rear wheel for each pedal revolution like you do on a keiser....
