comment Are Hövding helmets safer than regular helmets?
@DanielRHicks not necessarily, I'm sure they tested that case. There would be subtle differences when they analyse different data from ducking and falling. E.g. ducking would be more abrupt than falling, this is only looking at one axis. This technology has become more common, like how a camera can tell if you're smiling or an AppleWatch can tell if you get up from your seat is different from raising your hand. Anyway, this is not really the place to discuss this.

comment Are Hövding helmets safer than regular helmets?
@DanielRHicks It doesn't need to feel the substantial deceleration, it feels movements to tell if the rider is about to hit something. One very simple example is if the head moves 1 meter down, it'll know that the head will hit ground in fraction of second. The forces it analyses might not be substantial, but the patterns make them obvious.

I actually can't think of a better trigger mechanism than what they have. Given an accelerometer and huge_data for analysis, I wouldn't be surprised if it will have 99.99% accuracy because it can keep improving. e.g. they just need to sponsor a pro team to analyse how they crash then they can add these new data to the software. Granted, it won't protect them if someone throws a punch.

comment Why use 54T (or bigger) chainring?
That is interesting, although doesn't really answer the question. If it's significant, I'd expect to see more people with big ring on their road bikes, not only TT's. Regarding smallest cog, I think 13 is only UCI legal for junior races and that makes it rare.

It's not just pros, a lot of amateur triathletes also have big ring on their tt bikes, despite that they ride slower than pros on standard road bike.

comment Fluid trainer for an intermediate rider
Just want to comment on the fluid type, since it simulates road condition, I couldn't do slow pedalling and have high resistance at the same time even in top gear. Where with Tacx (or other magnetic) I can adjust the braking power with the switch. Could be important if you do that kind of interval.

comment Fluid trainer for an intermediate rider
I've been through the debate. I'm actually wondering if you've decided yet because the Tacx Flow you have in your options is actually an electro brake, not fluid (which I believe better than fluid ;) see tacx.com/en/products/trainers/flow I have an old satori (magnetic) it's no more noisy than fluid (tried cyclops), just tyre noise.
