For once I want to see it add. Is that too much too ask?

Depends on what numbers the computer is using. It may be showing average moving speed and might not be counting zeros for power (coasting).

Yah, a lot of head units donít count coasting, but Strava does.

It can only estimate based on what you show it. If you want a better idea of where the edge is, you need to really push to that edge. Intervals uses efforts of 3 min or longer, so I find it helpful to have a lap screen with timer and average lap power. Set up a screen like that and bury yourself (but don't peter out before 3min).

One challenge that you may have is that, although it's very flat in W'burg, there's lots of undulations and it may be tough to stay on top of the pedals when you crest a gentle roll and come down.

That's what I have set up on my computer and all of my 3' power marks were set on the same hill, which has a lot to do with where it is on my one of my routes out of town. I only noticed this after it happened a few times.

In the 30s at my friend's house where we plan to start but the sun is out and it is warming up a bit. No ride yesterday due to rain and wind so I'd like to have a nice one today.

You're missing out.

Got a good ride in. Temps dropped to a few degrees below freezing the first hour, but gradually warmed up. Plus, the Saturn passed annual inspection! :bday:

My intent to have a good week on the bike has been sabotaged by my family. Oh, well.

That's a long and expensive process that I don't really want to go through again. Besides, I kind of like them....most days.

He'll just have the stew sit on his lap in the cockpit. Isn't that what pilots do?

Fery few Christmas presents to buy. Goal is to buy only from local shops, and local products where possible. Picked up a bottle of Philadelphia-distilled Kinsey whiskey this afternoon.

I want to keep it forever, but current goal is 200K/25 years which is another 18 months or so. Currently at 191K.

Mrs datlas decided to Marie Kondo a bit in the garage and put four of my old (but still useful) cassettes on a small shelf on the pegboard.

Of course the shelf was not secured well and they came crashing down and got all mixed together. They are all 10 speed, but a mix of ranges and also mix of 1 Dura Ace, two Ultegra, and 1 105. The whole thing is now like a bad greasy puzzle. I will try to solve the puzzle eventually, but not today.

For some reason, I cannot respond to your PM, but the answer is yes - twice.

If that is so, I'd want to be on the Airbus.

Maybe.
