“If you want something done right, do it yourself.” That phrase has jumpstarted many companies whose founders recognized the right product either didn’t exist or needed to be improved. Uli Schoberer invented the cycling power meter nearly 30 years ago, and the early commercial versions of the SRM power meter were instantly recognizable by their bare aluminum crank arms. People may not have noticed the power meter disk contained in the spider, but those simple crank arms made a statement. With its proprietary carbon crank arms and rechargeable battery, the new SRM Origin power meter signals a return to that rebellious idea that if you want something done right, you better do it yourself.0 comments views
We’re halfway through the race season. Mountain bikers are coming back from World Cups, roadies are tuning up for nationals, and others pumping out fondos or grinding gravel on the weekends. Many of us who ride, race, and train are fortunate to use multiple bikes for these events and we create an obscene amount of data over a year of riding, let alone a lifetime. Well what are you supposed to do with all that data? And is it all valuable to look at? My quick answers are: capture it, and yes look at it. Why? Read on… It’s well established that training and racing with a power meter is the best way to monitor exercise intensity, training load, performance, and other matrices. This is particularly cemented in the road cycling culture; however, I often get questions such as “Do I really need a power meter on my mountain bike?” or “Won’t the heart rate monitor let me know about where I’m while racing on the cross bike?” Much of this comes down to budget, I get it. But you should know that capturing this data can lead to great insights about you, as an athlete. Don’t get me wrong: we can get people fit and coach world champions without power meters, but as technology improves and more cost-effective power meters come to market, there are compelling reasons to capture as much data as possible. Over the next few paragraphs, I’ll shed some light on why it’s ideal to use a power meter on more, or all, of your bikes if you’re looking to gain that cutting edge. Now, before we dive into the nerdy coach talk, please know that my whole aim for this writing is to educate you, the reader, then get a working game plan so you are equipped to optimally prepare to reach your goals. With many power meters and data monitoring devices on the market these days, it’s hard to sift through all the options to know what is best. Let’s take a look at some options while keeping the big picture, as well as your budget, in mind.
