Does your computer log max speed too? I am guessing that Olympic Park peaks higher?

That's a good weight weenie strategy. It should be listed. Just don't read off others' HR and PM readings though. :wink:

For HR, I work on the concept -> Are my legs r****d ?
Yes - hang in there
No - pedal harder

Ok, another unspoken weight weenies strategy. That's a whooping saving of at least 200g in weight compared with HRM, 400g compared with a PM.

Impressive! No wonder you climb well. :shock:

If you shaved your legs there'd be enough trade off to run a computer...and mudguards :twisted:
