    There you have it, Anquetil's pedalling secret. This simple technique can generate a powerful forward force in pedalling through TDC and 1 o'c. It makes maximal use of the strongest and most fatigue resistant muscles in the lower body which all cyclists leave lying idle, the Soleus with its powerful plantar flexion force, it can have up to 100% slow twitch fibers. When adapted for cycling, cleats eliminate the need for the downward traction force these chair racers have to produce.

    Not this nonsense again? You have been challenged repeatedly over decades to provide any concrete evidence for your claims - like power charts or time trial speeds. You have NEVER done so. I know you believe this fully, but lots of people believe lots of nonsense, and that doesn't make any of it true.

    And what this has to do with office chair racing, I have absolutely no idea. The ultimate non sequitur?

    You still don't get it. For 130 years scientists have been searching for the perfect oval shaped chainring or crank shape that would eliminate the dead spot sector, an impossible task. If instead they had concentrated on the muscles they would have discovered that this idling sector could be replaced with maximum torque by the correct combination of the lower body's most powerful muscles, in exactly the same way as these chair racers are generating their forward force. It was only in 2016 scientists discovered what a difference the combination of these muscles could make in the powerful force of plantarflexion. Quote below from 2016 research.
    " Bi-articular muscles are commonly found in the upper and lower extremities of the human body. These muscles generally cross two joints and influence movement at both. The rectus femoris (RF) spans the hip and knee, and the gastrocnemius (GA) crosses the knee and ankle. The actions of these muscles at their primary joints have been known for well over 100 years. The RF is an extensor of the leg, and the GA is a powerful plantarflexor. The descriptions of these particular actions have been relatively unchanged for many years and appear in most anatomy textbooks. However, these muscle action descriptions do not consider the influence the second joint may have on the muscle’s action at the primary joint, or vice versa. For example, considering the GA action at the ankle, how does the plantarflexion (PF) torque it generates change as the angles of the knee and ankle change? At what combination does muscular insufficiency arise? Advances in technology have made it possible to answer questions of this type, resulting in more detailed descriptions of the bi-articular muscles of the extremities."

    "Function[edit]

    The action of the calf muscles, including the soleus, is plantarflexion of the foot (that is, they increase the angle between the foot and the leg). They are powerful muscles and are vital in walking, running, and keeping balance. The soleus specifically plays an important role in maintaining standing posture; if not for its constant pull, the body would fall forward.
    Also, in upright posture, the soleus is responsible for pumping venous blood back into the heart from the periphery, and is often called the skeletal-muscle pump, peripheral heart or the sural (tricipital) pump.[5]
    Soleus muscles have a higher proportion of slow muscle fibers than many other muscles. In some animals, such as the guinea pig and cat, soleus consists of 100% slow muscle fibers.[6][7] Human soleus fiber composition is quite variable, containing between 60 and 100% slow fibers.[8]
    The soleus is the most effective muscle for plantarflexion in a bent knee position (Hence called the first gear muscle). This is because the gastrocnemius originates on the femur, so bending the leg limits its effective tension. During regular movement (i.e., walking) the soleus is the primary muscle utilized for plantarflexion due to the slowtwitch fibers resisting fatigue"

    Only if you apply the special oil extracted from the Black Mambo snake.

    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    That must be a troll duration record. Or effectively functioning as a troll anyway. I don't think the Pitbull pedals absurdity will be able to compete with that but time will tell.

    My old mentor, Gene Portuesi had a plaque in his bike shop: "Those of you who think you know everything are a real pain in the neck to those of us who actually do." I've taken that to heart and tried to live by it

    "So you’ve tried a professional bike fit, perhaps more than one. You’ve put your saddle up, down, forward and back. You’ve raised your stem, inclined your brake levers, and asked for advice from every cyclist you know. But still your back hurts. Perhaps the problem lies with you and not your bike?
    In this article, injury rehabilitation specialist Paul Argent takes an in-depth look at how to prevent lower back pain from cycling by making changes to your body, not your bike.

    First of all, you’re not alone. Although it may be of little consolation, lower back pain from cycling is seemingly universal. In a recent study of professional road racing cyclists, 45% reported having back problems in their career. A whopping 58% said they had suffered from back pain in the past year.
    Watch any professional cyclist get off their bike after a long race and you can probably identify with the discomfort they’re in as they struggle to stand up straight."
    https://cyclingtips.com/2018/10/lowe...to-prevent-it/
    More of the same type of nonsense on cycling related lower back pain that is published annually in all cycling magazines, which explains why it is as prevalent today as in the earliest years of cycle racing.


    The adaptation of that chair racing technique for additional power in time trials together with 'Scott Rake' aero bars not only replaces TDC and 1 o'c with maximum torque, it also completely eliminates the worst lower back pain that only occurs when riding a bike and clearly demonstrates the root causes of this torture which are, 1. Having to apply greatest torque in a vertically downward direction. 2. Having to use the core muscles to support all upper body weight. 3 The effect of vibration from road surfaces on the lower back while under stress from 1 and 2 above. 4. A defect in the lower back. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and the same applies to the lower back.
    The LBP solution lies in being able to retain a completely stress free lower back, even with a high TT gear, by switching peak torque application from 3+ o'c to 1.30 o'c. and the use of SCOTT RAKE aero bars. The powerful GM muscles and the alternately working arms are supplying the resistance instead of the lower back and core muscles, while one arm is supplying resistance the other is supporting all upper body weight.
