Got a BikeErg back in August 2020 and doing regular long rides on it (about 275K per week)

Recent PB for 10K: 17m05s - around 1:42.5 pace at about 325 watts and 88rpm..

Recent PB for 100K: 3h15m49s - around 1.57 pace... this duration is really hard on the seat bones/muscles!

I have height on my side at 196cm!

Well done, John! Have you experimented properly with much lower drag / higher cadence? Those seem like crazy high drag factors to me.

50km PB for me! Although it's not an official ranking distance I did manage to do the last 40km a fraction quicker than my stand-alone 40km PB. And so I'm now due a new stand-alone 40km PB! Also, the last 20km is a fraction faster than my stand-alone 20km PB! Basically, a really great ride.

1:23:43.4 / 50000 / 1:40.4 / 83

17:00.9 / 10000 / 1:42.0 / 82
16:57.9 / 20000 / 1:41.7 / 82
16:52.7 / 30000 / 1:41.2 / 83
16:38.2 / 40000 / 1:39.8 / 84
16:13.7 / 50000 / 1:37.3 / 86

Drag 126!

Thank you, Casey. Very nice riding for you!
Yes, I've experimented, but too low of resistance with higher cadence hurts my knees.

That's an impressive RPM and such a low DF too for that speed. 👍

Thanks John, I seen 591 watts @ 151rpm for the second 100 of that 200 as well. Just the starts seem to let me down. Nearly a 1.7 second difference between the first and second 100. Not sure if there is some secret to starting lol.
I am prob more suited to the 500 and 1 min for sprinting.

Well done on the PB but I've never seen anyone do remotely close to their best potential time on such a low drag factor. I'd imagine you're taking 60-70m just to get up to speed on such a low drag, hence why such a difference between the splits. Experiment with much higher drag and you can be at pace within 20-30m!

Casey,
That's 4k pace plus 11.8 seconds for 100km.
Almost 5 minutes off your previous best time. Well done!
