comment How long do Garmin's cycling GPS devices take to get an initial GPS lock?
The lock procedure is quite complicated, and can vary the lock time a lot.. but where I'd expect my Garmin Edge 500 (GPS only) to lock in about 20-30 seconds, I'd expect my Edge 510 (GPS+GLONASS) to take around 5-10 seconds.

comment Speed and comfort of a racing bicycle?
There's video of Guy Martin riding that bike at 181km/h - youtube.com/watch?v=wT0eJXtrwHg - it is a custom built bike, towed to get up to speed, then riding very close behind a modified truck.. So by no means a standard racing bike!

comment How do I help the less experienced cyclist cope with a hill climb?
Since this is all based on "1 hour P=100 watts", wouldn't the resulting calculation only be valid for a 1-hour long climb?

comment Why would a bike computer calculate distance accurately but average speed inaccurately?
@BenediktBauer Oops, thanks for spotting my, err, numeric dyslexia.. but, the main point was to demonstrate how limitations in the calculation would introduce errors. Edited the question to clarify this a bit
