Yes, your bike splits probably could be improved. Most triathletes have not been properly set-up for performance or comfort on their bicycle and most are not riding a Serotta TT. For years, triahletes have been prey to an industry eager to lighten their pockets with ''high-tech'' temptations. For the most part, the high speed turnover is the rate of passing fads rather than improved performance. The Serotta TT is built upon a Legend Ti platform with the addition of our ''BigAir'' aero down tube, which reduces drag, but not at the expense of power transfer and added weight that typically occurs with other aero frames.

I recently did a 40k TT in 1:00:40, but I dont have a power meter on my bike, so I dont know my average power or my functional threshold power. I have a computrainer, so I would like ... Read More »
