During my Saturday morning reading, I found this gem:

It is probably the best thing I've seen written on the topic. I think the methodology and ideas in it are very intriguing.

Things that stuck with me:

1) I'm not so sure that the equation of motion they use is correct (Crr is probably a function of speed on non-smooth surfaces)

2) their assessment/commentary of robustness of parameters as a function of calibration venue slope (vary the venue altitude, but not too much)

3) their specification of various filters during data reduction (kalman and savitzky-golay)

4) their methodology around using DGPS to measure calibration venue altitude profile (and subsequently combining it with derived elevation values by back-solving the equation of motion based on power meter data...i.e-> virtual elevation).

There's plenty more good stuff in there to think about during your next round of field testing!

Saw the link on the front page, but have only read the first page or so. Will try to read it all when I get the time - hopefully before "field testing season" starts here

Thanks for sharing.
