Best guess today is that almost all of the logs of the last 8 months Have been very good, if one wants to make the best of a faulty body mechanics model. I'm not sorry for James, but for anyone seriously following I am concerned.
Although there are times in the last 8 or 9 months where James has Suddenly realize that this is a recumbent bicycle, It seems that never was that fully grasped, and never held on to.
Point being, The fatal flaw has been, James thinks as of this morning, Lack of crystal clear clarity that All energy Need be directed 70ﾟ forward. Exactly as a cyclist would be directing energy straight down.
James, you have spoken of this in the past! In approximate terms, yes. Fully grasping it, clearly grasping it, as is happening right now, maybe never, maybe not in the last 8 months, maybe not in all the years with this vehicle.
Maybe this post today is all a mistake. Doesn't seem possible.
Also doesn't seem possible that it has taken James 3 or 4 years with this vehicle to grasp this now. Be that as it may, that seems to be the case.
It cannot be disputed that the position of the cyclist in this vehicle is rotated approximately 70ﾟ backwards. Therefore, if a traditional cyclist is directing the force of each stroke Directly downward, then it is certainly appropriate that the cyclist in this vehicle direct all force 70ﾟ forward.
That was done yesterday, and so far this morning. And it is a fairly Significant evolution, and maybe profound.
The following has only one data point, but it is extremely interesting. For the last several weeks An application and watch fit bit have been employed. For many months James has calculated his energy input As a multiple of what the torque sensor reports, 3.6 being the multiple that translates Human W into calories. Most days this fitbit application that calculates calories based on heart rate elevations from resting, has reported considerably higher calories than the calculation 3.6 × torque sensor registered watts.
The observation here maybe an aberration. And in several days there will be more data points. But the initial thought is that by lacking any clarity that the direction of energy must be 70ﾟ forward, much energy has gone into the last part of every stroke being downward, maybe 40ﾟ. If this was substantially wasted energy then it makes sense that although James has been putting X amount of energy into the crankshaft that much more energy has been expended, an additional 10, 20, 30% has been expended, wasted, in a last 2nd downward motion. Will be intere sting to see. Seems unlikely that this is not the case.
