    Ha! That's why I was in such a flap about inov-8 a few pages back... I wanted new shoes for London, but their weird new sizing is such that I ended up having to glue these ones back together. Glue has done a good job for the last week or so, so I'm not too worried. :-)

    Ready to go...
    Plan is to set out at 4:23/km and assess how I'm feeling come halfway.

    Good luck anyone else who's running.

    Well that's exactly what I mean. I would probably have gone to Mike Taylor (Lynn Biddulph's brother I think?), and he has plenty of experience fitting people to TT bikes, but eyeballing aeros is very different to measuring them.

    Given that I need a proper bike fit anyway, and if aero-coach essentially covers wider bike fit issues in addition to the aeros then it makes £350 a no brainer!

    Seriously tempted.

    Assuming that I would primarily be interested in optimising my position on the bike for Ironman racing (I don't have the luxury of testing multiple equipment options), to what extent do you work on other bike-fit issues such as comfort, optimisation of power and the ability to run of the bike etc?

    After some minor equipment changes I find myself pretty uncomfortable on my TT bike and so I'm planning a bike fit anyway, but should I look at aero-coach as a fancy bike fit with optimised aerodynamics, or should I look at it as an addition to a separate bike fit?

    Aha! Registering tomorrow. I was wondering if I'd lost something from the registration form.

    How do you know your pen? All I know is my number, and then from cross referencing that with the website that I'm in the Red zone.

    I use the numbers from races on the basis that it's a more accurate reflection of my physiological ability (which is what FTP is supposed to be measuring). It also makes me work a bit harder in training which is always a good thing!

    When I do private CP20 tests, I just put my poor performances down to the psychological issue of me being a bit of a wuss.

    Well done! Looks like the new bike did well for you! Power numbers not too shabby either.

    That might be useful if I could have it rotated so it's visible most of the time while I'm on aero bars.

    Both my 310 and 910 display power, and the mounts work to keep them the correct way up when on the aero bars... you just need a Forerunner specific mount or Barfly which can cope with both Forerunner and Edge mounts .
