comment Bottom bracket bearings grinding only when installed into frame
@BenSiver: I wonder how it went afterwards? Did they have to replace your tight BB or did they do anything else? I'd like to know about the outcome of this issue.

AFAIK there're tools sets that come for both. Installation and removal.

I still think this is not a usual PressFit system. Based on the PDF diagram I've provided a link in my previous comment it seems that bearings go directly into the frame BB body and only plastic cups fit inside of bearings afterwards which assure there's no rub against the outer ring when one tightens cranks. For this reason I suppose bearings shouldn't go in too hard as they're made of metal and not plastic or aluminium. PF usually has ALU/plastic outer material so they accommodate shell while being pressed in. I've never done this myself, but that's just my reasoning. How about you?

But that's for Shimano XTR (mountain bike groupset)... According to Wilier this is the diagram that matches Cento1: twohubs.com/pdf/Wilier-Cento-Uno-bb-diagram.pdf

Not sure but I think it's 2009 or 2010.

BB386 is used by the new frame models like Zero7, Zero9, Cento1SR, Cento1Air... But not the older Cento1. The old Cento1 doesn't have the BB386 but some other type that I don't know which one it is.

comment Is it better to breathe through your nose or mouth when cycling?
In low effort situation it's always the healthiest way to breath in through nose and breath out through mouth but it needs some time to get used to it. Those that do pilates will already be used to this technique. Likely joga guys as well.

@DanielRHicks: Although I've never gotten bugs in my nose while windpipe yes a few times.

comment Is it better to breathe through your nose or mouth when cycling?
I think that breathing through your nose is hardly enough because when you start grasping for air on some climb that raises your HR, you're trying to get as much air in your lungs as possible. Mouth usually gets that done quicker. :)

comment How to significantly lower HR[avg] while improving performance output
That's a great estimation which roughly sums up to between 1800km and 3500km per season in my country. Most amateurs cyclists push pedals for 4-5 months. Beginning and ending is not that intensive so I calculated as if 4 months with the same amount. And you're right about those enthusiasts that buy a bike and do the 50. In the second year that 20 ride is most likely some very steep hill that kills their legs and ambition for the next 2 months... :D I had a friend like that. :D

I know of others that have about 30k at the moment, but that doesn't mean that everyone else is doing that much. I think (and I suppose many would agree) that vast majority of cyclists do about 2k km per season. Maybe going to some competition. In my country that would mostly be one. The major one where about 6000 people turn up.

@Daniel: I'm loading data after the ride. I have my monitor tones turned off during a ride and don't look at it most of the time. I always try to ride on my feeling really. But as I analyse my data afterwards I can see there's room for improvement.

comment How to significantly lower HR[avg] while improving performance output
@Daniel: Yes for a normal aerobic regular training. But races are a different activity where participants tend to pus themselves. This particular climb is known to be first 10% on 80%HRmax, then 80% on 90%HRmax and the last 10% on 100%HRmax.

comment How to significantly lower HR[avg] while improving performance output
Well... :) I like being competitive even though I rank in the first third of participants. Usually. I'm glad I'm as fit as I am (compared to other comrades) but I strive to improve my times every year if I can. Keeping indoor winter training hard enough usually gives me good spring foundation so I don't start anew.

Th3 first 5 minutes were not climb yet. So climb was 50 min 55 sec and 7.11 mi long. And my weight is 67 kg and I'm 173 cm high. May I ask you how did you estimate (calculate?) power output? I'm curious...

comment How to significantly lower HR[avg] while improving performance output
So your answer is what? Train harder and HR[avg] at the same level of performance/power will drop? Is that what you're saying? Because I've done a bit less than 2500km in the last 5 months or so. How much training will get me there? And can I expect my HR[avg] to drop from 180 to 160 on the same slope with same timing? or would that be just +-5 bpms or so?

comment How to significantly lower HR[avg] while improving performance output
Are you taking about HR[max] or HR[rest]? As much as I know resting heart rate falls with regular intensive exercise, doesn't it? Maximum still stays although your body output increases. So you can do more but heart rate stays the same. My HR[rest] is already quite low as it's 48bpm.

comment Where can I find local bike routes?
There are two major parameters: avg speed and climbing speed. Based on these two it calculates your route. You're fast on flats and it slows down on climbs based to steepness. That's why I love it.

comment is this derailleur short cage or long cage?
It's pretty obvious it's strictly short cage.
