@vinay: propulsive power meters are definitely underutilized - especially in MTB, and at all levels - but the insights are super powerful. You might be able to find someone to let you borrow or test ride one to see if that's the info you're after. If it helps you optimize your coasting it sure sounds like a win to me.

@vinay: a power meter would do ya! Key Opportunities for pedaling might be a thing one day in our app. Not saying it's something we're working on, but you never know... ;)

@justinfoil: the TR doesn't fit on 220 or 223mm rotors. It has to do with the angle the caliper sits on the bigger size. Most companies end up having a +20mm adapter with different geometry for spacing from 200-220 versus the other sizes. For example, Hope (see P versus L): https://www.hopetech.com/_repository/1/documents/BrakeAdaptorChart2021.pdf

GPSs aren't perfect, but we're always improving the way these signals are used in our system and you can definitely see clear differences in braking as you improve. Any ride can be exported to sync the raw braking trace with your POV camera so there's no mistaking your exact location. For added accuracy, our app can connect to and control your GoPro so that timing is synced.

@kcy4130: cheers mate! You're right - brake power is definitely dependent on traction. BrakeAce doesn't measure traction, per se, but by measuring brake torque/power the app is reporting what your wheels did as a result of you you squeezing the brakes. For example, you could hold the lever in the same exact position, but your braking trace and the FlowScore (and probably Modulation score) of that same event in the same section of trail would be measurably different based on the conditions, your tires, bike setup, positioning, line, etc. Those same scores can be compared between riders to assess good or poor approaches/setups.

@mtmc99: cheers mate! We shipped some more PF2s last week, so watch out for some feedback for the pros and their coaches. About dragging your brakes - it would skip past these little events and show you on the map the 3 places where you have the most room to improve

There have been a few theses on MTB before and since. My supervisor worked to understand if 29ers really were crap. No need to thank him - he knows how the story played out ;)
