Re: Any Newton compatible mount for aero cookpit

Thanks for the feedback John! I was also thinking about that, but thought there may be an aftermarket solution already, like the K-Edge Newton Mount...
Probably I will have then to CNC machine an aluminium bracket (yes indeed, beneath the stem there are two bolts).

Best regards,

George.

Any Newton compatible mount for aero cookpit

Hello everyone: I want to ask you all whether or not you know any existing mounting solution of the iBike Newton to an Aero cockpit (integrated stem and handlebar) where the tubes are oval and not round. One such model would be the Aero cockpit of Canyon Aeroad or new Scott Foil. Is there any way of...

Re: Blocked wind port!!! Need advice!

Hi there John! Yes I was riding in a group through most of the ride, except the final climb and the way back, on the descent and the final flat portion, which was on my own. I blew into the wind port. Hopefully things should be ok now. Nevertheless I will check it out today, if my body will listen t...

Blocked wind port!!! Need advice!

Hi everyone: I just came back from "Clasica Internacional de Los Lagos de Covandonga", a century race that takes places every year in Asturias, Spain. The weather this year was quite bad, raining thorough the whole race, high humidity and fog. After reaching the summit and returning back, after the ...

Re: Wind data might be off???

Cal Ride was successful (checking calibration from analyse menu no changes whatsoever). And the whole ride after the files w...

Re: Wind data might be off???

Thanks Fernando! I did check Out-and-back initially, but when I did that the power numbers jumped and I saw an average increase in power of about 30W for the whole ride. Instead of 133W it was showing around 166W, which is a value higher than what Newton displayed as soon as I finished the ride (aro...

Re: Wind data might be off???

Hi again: Reading a bit through the "whys-and-hows of wind offset", I will probably check wind offset inside the garrage and if the numbers are sufficiently close to zero I will leave it as it is and do a new cal ride. By what margin should the wind sensor be off in order to requiere a new wind cal?...

Wind data might be off???

Hi everyone: On the ride I did today (it's almost an out-and-back but not 100%) I have noticed that the wind data might be off. What I mean is that before the middle of the ride, the wind speed is bellow wheel speed, and right after the middle, where I circled a roundabout and turned the other way a...

Isaac detects drafting when no actual drafting

Hello everyone: I believe this topic was somehow discussed in other threads, but just to make sure I attach a ride file I did today and explain myself. It is a solo ride, NOT out-and-back, but it ended where it began. The original file (if analyze and return to original option is used) marks an aver...

Re: Tilt measuring and repairing bad tilt eide

Dear Jose: I can confirm what Russ is stating. I had some initial issues with the front mount slightly twisting (I had not used double-sided tape) on the handlebar. This caused the tilt angle to shift about 1-1.5 degrees after a few rides . Nevertheless, about 5 minutes into the ride, every ride, th...

Re: Feature request - Handling Profiles

Great feature tip! This would really easen and smoothen the UI and overall experience with the Newton.

The current process of loading profiles to Newton and keeping track o...

Also do I need to send the newly update profile to Newton or Isaac automatically sent it when I saved the cal ride? How can I tell if Newton is using the updated profile? Attached I post a screenshot.
