Inspired by the Tour de France's 2016 individual time trial, where the optimal set up between a time trial bike and a normal bike for a difficult up- and downhill course was discussed, we have developed a tool to find an optimal set up with real GPS and power data. This may be used for time trials and triathlon circuits.
Our tools are based on MS Excel. so easy to use. Three applications are available:
Modeling Alberto Contador - from a time trial bike (perfect aerodynamics, higher weight) to a normal bike (less aerodynamic, lower weight).
With a 2km longer climb, a normal road bike with extensions would be competitive to a time trial bike.
