    What sort of intervals were you doing to put yourself in that sort of pain?

    Clock - flat out hard as 15s, 30s, 1min, 2min, 3min, 2 min, 1min, 30s, 15s - minute recovery between each, repeat x3 with 5minutes recovery between sets.

    Criss cross - 5minutes at 105% threshold, 5 minutes at 93% threshold repeat x 3 no recovery

    You got it right first time.

    How tall are you?

    End of 3 week block with some savage intervals. Can barely climb stairs. Will have to reset as important events now 4 months away. Has the last 2 months of speed work been wasted now I'm planning on 6hr races July/August?

    Thinking Scalpel, Epic or Lux

    Not sure how many XXL FS XC frames there are?

    I haz an Epic - light S works build - very good, faster than my HT on XC courses. Also recommend Salsa Spearfish if you like doing miles.

    am thinking of trying to do it first thing, so straight out of bed, coffee and onto the turbo. I've never used energy drinks before but am thinking I should if I want to do longer sweetspot or ftp intervals. Can anyone recommend something to try?

    I too am a morning person but this is really hard. I can do Z2 base straight out of bed but anything more seems much harder than a couple of hours later even.

    Tried 30:18 on a recent steep hilly event because I had a NW 30T and no 19T. Worked out a tiny bit under 32:19 which was good.
    Riding a single speed is all about coping with unbearable pain.

    I'm just amazed by how low a gearing you need to keep it all manageable

    Yeah it does get a bit spinney. Bit like being a contractor - the only time the effort is right is is when you're headed for too much or too little

    I ran a Simple with horizontals and found no issues with caliper alignment when I replaced the wheel after a puncture. If you run a tug you'll need to adjust that but that also was easy enough.
    I've not run an EBB but I'd love a Swift if I didn't have my Superfly.

    SSMTB is highly addictive (and painful). You will be amazed what you can get up if you keep on going until you fall over.

    Currently sleep deprived - amazed how badly it's affecting my ability to train. Motivation also low as just about every event I had hoped to enter is either cancelled, miles away or clashes with family stuff. No darling I won't be opening Easter Eggs on Sunday with the kids I'm taking the day to myself to do 90minutes of XC....

    Grinding a heavy singlespeed gear wont get your pulse high for 3 hours, but toll ur legz much

    Tall bar is threshold. Much fatigue still
