A Few Finished Projects

Posted by mitch jones on June 26, 2015 at 22:13 0 Comments

Over the last few weeks, I've managed to finish off the Contessa, & my shopping bike. The Contessa came up a treat & rides like a charm. It's the first time I've ridden a 3 speed, & the Shimano hub is smooth & quiet. My wife enjoys riding it too which is great!

 

My shopping bike was a success too. I ended up doing about 25km or so around town on it's first ride & it didn't miss a beat. I also picked up a couple of chrome guards in good nick  for it as well for $2:00 each-bargain! I'll definitely be using this one a bit more!…

Posted by Andrew Vogler on May 1, 2013 at 14:03 6 Comments

It seems the hot topic on the Training and Nutrition forum over the last month has been whether power meters provide better feedback about exercise intensity than heart rate (HR) monitors. As an Accredited Sports Scientist and operator of a sports physiology practice (Adelaide Human Performance), I thought I’d provide my thoughts on the topic. 

But before I discuss power output and HR as methods for monitoring exercise intensity, I’ll quickly answer a question about my previous blog titled ‘How accurate are age-based estimates of maximum heart rate (HRmax)?’ As age only partially explains between-individual variations in HRmax, one reader asked what other factors contribute to determining someone’s HRmax? One of the main factors is heart size. A larger heart can pump more blood with each heartbeat, meaning more blood can be pumped for any given heart rate. In fact, an increase in heart size (resulting…

Adel to Melb via the coast solo unsupported April 2015

Posted by Tom Ford on May 20, 2015 at 10:30 8 Comments

On Tuesday 14 April I set off from my backyard with the goal of reaching Melbourne on or before Friday 24 April. The ride was solo and unsupported. I’ll cover the ride first, and the gear and setup down below if you’re interested. This write up just got out of hand how long it is, sorry bout it! But decided to leave it long in case anyone is thinking of doing a similar ride. When I was researching prior, I was looking for any and all information. 

Day 1 – set off from home all packed at rolled out from home in North Adelaide at 9am a bit behind schedule, and a puncture on Greenhill Rd just before Devereux Rd… what are the chances. Fixed it and got going but rear mech wasn't shifting cleanly, spent more than an hour trying everything… Turns out I’d put the spring on the quick…
