    You know Polar just came out with a new unit that also tells you where your power band is, where the power comes from in the stroke ,and the imbalances.

    hmm i always wonder where my peak rpm is
    i guess and stick to it usually

    although if one knew, they could get one of those cvt bikes and dial it in

    clear tracks before you go, save when you return, connect and boom

    i'll check it out tomorrow after my ride

    i've never been to the website, i just usually use the training center software that the computer came up with


    if i could use the motion-based page and link it in my log, it would save a lot of time from copy/pasting the graphs into MSpaint and copying all the stats :bowdown:

    i set mine up last night... pretty cool, but it doesn't give all of the information that my training center does... still, it'll be a lot easier to link the pages in my log and fill in the missing info than it was copy/pasting everything

    I wish there was something like this around and affordable back in the day when I used to mountain bike race, etc. I used to draw my trail maps out by hand or outline them on regular topo maps.
