so does that mean the relevant 'distance' is the distance between the spider and the strain gauge? so lets say that distance is 5mm (so 0.005 metres). if for example the srm output says the torque is10Nm, then the force is 10/0.005=2000 newtons?

Re: DHBC Lionel Cox Memorial Sprint Derby Omnium - 4pm April

Great Stuart, I'll count your reply as a confirmation :) I'm not sure when the last sprint event was - there was one at that council open day a year or so ago. But I'm not sure about before that. But I am sure that this one will be awesome fun. Justin - I took the picture from somewhere on the net.....

Re: Veloflex Tires

Thanks for the offer rhys... I'm hoping to be able to buy some at the end of the year, but I really can't afford them now, and I don't think I can afford to have $210 worth of tubular tyres sitting under my bed with no tubular wheels to put them on :(

Veloflex Tires

I splashed out and bought veloflex record tyres on wiggle... but being the idiot I am I ordered tubulars not clinchers...
I just thought I'd check before sending them back that noone wanted to buy record tubulars? They haven't been
taken out of the pack or anything.

Cheers :)

A. yes, you will look great at the beach haha tim love it! on a more serious note i would think doing weights for any cycling event longer than the 500m/1000m TTs would be an inefficient use of training time. going to the gym would be better than sitting on the co...
