I think that's called 'intervals'.

you have to be going over a certain speed and not on a recumbent in order for them to work.


Also need lyrca shoe covers and a very long distance.

Arrhh, seen your problem now
Not complying with Rule 24 in thought and action

Switch over and the gains will come.

But, seriously, how do you know the aero helmet did not help?

Could have added 0.5km/h to your average speed.

Read this article that references the work of Robert Chung - he has some fairly reliable techniques to estimate the impact - far better than seat of the pants.

Close - I didn't call them that because the time between was too long to qualify as intervals.

It resulted in the slowest of my three downhill runs, by .7 mph.

Lets get some data

Go back and assume the position



Maybe you were off the aero tuck and creating more drag

Do a couple of time runs with and without, get someone to follow you with a gopro and check your position when wearing the aero helmet.

I was professionally fitted for that bike by Adam Baskin, USA Triathlon Level I Coach. I did several downhill runs comparing only the helmets. Variables like body position, starting speed, wind conditions, etc., were identical. I didn't expect the aero helmet to result in much of a speed increase, possibly not even one that would register over such a short time, but I certainly didn't expect to see a measurable speed reduction either.

You're a funny man K7.

I'm leaving this one alone completely. As much as my inner "yea but" is flaring up, I must be strong and do something productive. I'll be out back worming the dog.

Nope.

Not a word.

I went on a ride this AM with a coupla buddies. Didya know small guys (smaller'n me anyway) don't make much of a draft? D.O. *may* weigh 130# and rides a 50-51cm TT. When you're going somewhat quickly, that hole in the air becomes important!

Then I got back and did a coupla hours of mowing.
