I was going to post something similar. I've had problems when there are too many signals in the immediate area.

This ^^^. When I calibrate my Saris trainer, I have to close down everything else.

Front wheel is bent, tire is popped still trying to see any other damage. Kit is destroyed. Helmet did its job.

Damn. Sorry to hear that, man. That sucks a lot. I hope the frame and fork are okay...and your body.

I thought I had seen BT ****ery before I got a smart trainer. :crash:

Ever get the eery feeling somebody's taking your picture? (Look on the sideline.)

To state the obvious, sounds like you're in an ambiguous place surgically, because they don't have a definitive cause for your pain and are justifiably hesitant to mess around. It's very hard to balance a set of known risks against an unknown benefit. I really hope someone figures something out for you soon!

Jeez, that sucks! I hope you and the bike recover ok.

I missed it, I think. What are you sanding?

Setting up my trainer, the other day, was a pain, too. For some reason, my armband HRM didn't want to pair with the BT dongle, though the older (and not preferred) chest strap would. Connecting via the Zwift Companion App, through the phone, got the new HRM to work fine, but then I couldn't get the trainer connected. :notamused: It wasn't until after I connected the trainer as a power meter that it would connect as a controllable trainer. :rolleyes:

And people complain about tubeless tires. :p

That's rough.

Miserable weather for the ride today. Damp cold (mid-40s) and damn windy. Decided to do a shorter ride than normal, just because it wasn't terribly enjoyable. When I got home, I realized that I had some numbness going on in my fingers, which isn't typical for me at these temps, and it took a good half hour for them to warm up and regain all feeling.

I know that I'll get more used to the conditions as the season wears on, but **** me, does this make trainer work look a little more appealing.

Great conditions for a ride today. It's sunny and 75F.

Sadly, I am stuck at work all day and unable to take advantage of above. I was able to sneak out on my lunch "hour" for a quick 15 minute walk for which I am grateful.

Ouch. Hope your OK.

More importantly the new bike isn't too screwed up.

But in fairness, this is my least favorite riding weather. I'll take a dry 25 over a damp 45 any time. The whipping wind was just the turd on top.

I think there's a limit to how many devices can connect via Bluetooth. And I think that limit is ONE. Do you have an ANT+ dongle? I have one, on a USB extension cord designed just for that. I put the end in a ziploc bag, and place that behind the front wheel, connected to the laptop.

BTW, here's my Zwifting setup. No, the orange bucket is NOT for puking into! Mind you, that's not a bad idea.....

I'm about to slather some drywall mud. Not looking forward to the sanding portion of the programme.

I do those BEFORE putting on bibs.

BTW, I was looking at ProBikeKit the other day, and apparently you can buy - for $30 + shipping - a Nalini "Indoor Towel". It's black, 100% cotton and weighs 360 grams. Nothing about how big it is, but they list the weight, because that's SO IMPORTANT when riding in the garage.

The number of connectable devices depends upon the BT version. My BT dongle is fairly current and can certainly handle more than one (I know that I ran PM, speed sensor and HRM concurrently last year).

I used to have an ANT+ dongle, but that was even more of a pain in the ass. I don't remember why, but I needed a very specific one and the driver support was dead, dead, dead.

I'm seeing pics of pumpkin pie on Instagram.

Now I want pumpkin pie.
