Re: Rolling resistance in the rain

Yeah, when I looked it was mostly other wheel types with patterned treads. For example: http://www.davidpublisher.org/Public/uploads/Contribute/566e64a472e9f.pdf I was actually thinking more about being outside and caught in a sudden downpour. You don’t change clothing or anything, but going it feel...

Rolling resistance in the rain

Just caught the end of today’s stage of the Giro d’Italia, which was very wet. The calculations for CdA and power in the other profiles require an estimate of rolling resistance. The device could possibly detect actual puddles using the accelerometer & adjust the rolling resistance? But, riding alon...

Re: AeroPod CdA Connect IQ app for Garmin

The device I’ve purchased is still on pre-order (Edge 530). The predicted shipping is mid-May, although I wouldn’t be surprised if it was later. Is the aeropod Connect IQ thing going to appear in the Connect IQ store and, if so, do you guess it will appear by then?

Re: AeroPod CdA Connect IQ app for Garmin

I’ve finally got a device with Connect IQ, or will shortly. Garmin have recently released a new streamlined way of getting apps onto the device. Just searched in the new ‘connect IQ’ App for you. Can’t see it. I’ve tried ‘aeropod’ and ‘velocomp’: are you in the Connect IQ store?

Re: Isaac 5 for Windows--AeroPod FW now downloadable

Just to let you know your instructions on how to manually update the firmware using the Mac software worked perfectly.

I’m guessing the PC software has a similar interface & they could do the same if they are having problems?

Re: 4k video about AeroPod featuring Steve Jackson, elite triathlete

The thing that most surprised me about the video is the mount he used (as well as the magnitude of CdA change). I thought it had to be really firmly attached, but he was getting away with a click-in GoPro mount.

Re: New AeroPod firmware 7.06

As regards the 5 minute warm up: does that apply to the profiles that don’t have CdA? My cycles to the swimming pool and heath to run both require stopping at red lights, surging on greens & there are lots of 90° turns. I don’t actually need super accuracy there anyway - main use is to avoid getting...

Re: CdA changes between headwind and tailwind - to be expected?

I’ve wondered before if effective weight varies with airspeed & if the effect is significant. Just imagining a cyclist I can easily see an aerofoil type effect at higher speeds, with higher pressure underneath the rider than above the back. I can’t remember the formula for CRR but I think it is line...

Re: What if AeroPod could be paired to a cycling computer as a heart rate monitor?

What about headunits that connect via Bluetooth rather than Ant+? Have you any idea if the Bluetooth Special Interest Group are going to release a Bluetooth CdA profile? I’m thinking mostly about Bluetooth connected phone apps and the newer Suunto watches mainly.

The 4 buttons aren’t as easy to hit as the middle one on a Newton, but they’re real and don’t need specia...

I liked the Newton+ too and the uncluttered Display (in daytime anyway).

I guess my point is pointless as I didn’t realise the Aeropod transmitted power over Bluetooth to third party apps.
