    Bike fit - Brisbane

    I would recommend Mark Watts the Retul fitter at West End, put most of my team through him and the feedback has be great https://www.facebook.com/mark.c.watts.79 Also, Jaaron at Cyc'd for bikes has recently bought the new Guru system. He and Jack Anderson and trained up on this and it would be worth checking out and having a look. PM me if you have any more questions, I know these guys pretty well Paul

    Which power meter option

    I've been coaching a bucket load of people of PM's for the past 10 years now. All starting out the with polar model, wires and lining things up perfectly to read accurately, LOL. from what I have found SRM = way too expensive and are getting priced out of the market Quarq = still the most reliable and best overall product in terms of reliability Powertap = Cheap and are now consistent but lack comparative analysis between PM's, tend to read lower for obvious reasons. Have just brought out a pedal based system but wouldn't touch it. Pioneer = So far coming out okay with 4 clients I have using them...Liking this one Stages = will be reliable, IF, you just tape up the battery cover, those things suck, even V2 hasn't improved. They are priced well and if you are new to power, then jump on these. Don't go 2nd though Pedal based PM's = don't go there yet, but the potential is there paul

    power analysis gurus

    You took it out way too easy. Generally break a test up into quarters, the 3rd quarter in well executed test usually results in the lowest AP. A test like yours should never see power profile north that much towards then end of the test. Just googled some results (well executed ones too) I wouldn't be using this test to set up your zones, but it is a good starting point. Draw a line through that 3rd quarter where you power levels out, set that up as a benchmark and have another crack. fluro

    Coaches value proposition

    I'm all number 3 BB Don't advertise and spend any money on it, and rely purely on athlete results and letting the athletes promote our business. We keep it evidence based. Blowing wind up peoples A#$% works, but we are more concerned about keeping people around for the long term and building relationships that work. I now have 3 coaches working for me and you probably don't even know I exist, LOL So true trek52 fluro

    At what point do you realize.........

    Great question...For me it took 7 x IM's and chronic running injuries and a surgeon to suggest that he'll remove the nerves from my feet so I could actually run, but I would have no feeling in my toes for the rest of my life.......When I thought that might be a good option, I decided to walk away from the sport. No regrets fluro

    Chrissie Wellington’s top ten lessons for triathletes

    All forums are dictated by the people that have the highest post counts.....They set the theme, and the majority will just naturally follow. Just look around at all forums in general....they are the people that can make or break a topic in an instant....which is precisely what happens here. For the mods, what sucks is when you get people who post a lot, have no real interest in genuinely keeping it on topic. That's a battle the mods will never win, you just have to hope that one day you'll have a regular poster that is genuinely interested in posting triathlon related posts. When that happens the quality of this forum will increase 10 fold. There are plenty of cycling forums that achieve this and are great resource for anyone looking to improve their cycling. At same time there are cycling forums that are dictated by people that contribute very little to the value of that forum. Pick and choose Fluro

    FTP test

    I think for someone like Niseko, being an IM athlete, looking at those test results, his primary concern is fuel....How is he going to fuel an 84kg body for over 9hrs in an IM? He has good numbers, but it will come at a cost on the run. In saying that his results, show that he is pushing that right to the limit. fluro

    TTT pacing

    G'day DD, It been great working with Oyto, lots of raw talent there, for an old guy, ;-). He just didn't know what to look for with his numbers and once we broke it down, we could start focusing on what he needs to do for States. I haven't had enough time with him yet, but he is starting to get some good results in training and is really improving his repeatability. The back end of his sessions are producing good numbers now. fluro
