Last night I spent a bit of time installing the cadence sensor on Dale. I have had the equipment for some time but just hadn’t made the investment in time to set it up and install it on the bike.
It was an easy job, although there is a slight issue with the size of the bladed spokes and the magneto sensor. I will do some investigation to see if there is an alternative. I do have a spare magnet anyway and I think The Grind is one of the better test to see if the setup is stable and efficient. It worked perfect and with some slight calculations it works out that I rotate the cranks some 12,798 times. It is almost unbelievable when you put the numbers together.
The ride it self was shit. I was so slow, in pain and suffer more than most times I ride The Grind. Pretty unhappy all round, although I had completed a S1 at the gym the day before hand it still equates to way too much time of the bike during the tooth issues.
I do think I can recover quickly and form should return soon. It was just disappointing. Back to the gym tomorrow anyway for the S2 session.Read More
