comment would you use vo2 max intervals increase your functional threshold power using a power meter?
+1 for the TRWPM suggestion - Excellent book that teaches the ins and outs of powermeters and how to use them to nail down both training and racing.

comment Riding bicycle without using seat
@BMX - What hillsons is describing is very long term type damage. It is still good to have a properly fitting bike and seat, but nerve/blood vessel damage takes years to become permanent (Unless you have a trauma of some sort, such as crash or bad impact), and muscle imbalances will also take months to a year to develop to a point where you have to do supplemental exercises to correct them.

comment Riding bicycle without using seat
Find a good local bike shop that has a "try it out" seat program. You may have some luck with this at triathlon stores as well. A properly fitting seat is critical. Also, as the other poster has said, getting used to a bike seat takes some adaptation.

comment Headwind when riding in a loop
@superdesk - Depends on the toroidal shape of the wheel, surface composition (dimpled or non), etc. It will also change with the size/type of tire on the wheel. Triathletes go into infinite detail on things like this.

comment How do you use a power meter to pace yourself during steep hill time trial events?
Per your last edit comment: Agreed, which is why I asked if they were different days. If they are different days, then yeah, just mash it as hard as you can. If they are same day, then it gets into pacing and recovery.

Are they on the same day? Or are they different days/events in a series?

comment What are the differences in mountain bike hubs (With wheelset recommendation)?
I'd have either wheelbuilder or an experienced person build them up. My one attempt at a road wheel was....less than usable. :)

comment What are the differences in mountain bike hubs (With wheelset recommendation)?
I'm not against a single manufacturer wheelset, I was just trying to price out a set at wheelbuilder (As I've done many times for road wheels), and I realized I didn't have the vocabulary. This is a great answer, thank you very much!

comment Sliding chain over the cassette
Is your Acera a Hyperglide (HG) or an Interglide (IG) cassette? There can be compatibility problems causing jumping if you mix the two and run an HG chain on an IG cassette or vice versa.

comment Calculate frame stack and reach
@DanielRHicks - Probably because it's a road frame, not a TT frame and stack/reach is somewhat irrelevant.
