That’s right, GMBN are doing science! Neil’s measuring what’s more efficient to use on a XC MTB, clip pedals or flat pedals. But this time he’s not just relying on the clock. He’s got a power meter, feeding data about cadence and performance directly into an on board computer! Let’s get scientific!

The course I’m riding today is pretty mellow. Lots of hard packed cross country style trails, but also a couple of pretty punchy climbs where I’m gonna have to put the power down. On my bike, I’ve got a power meter and I’m wearing a heart rate monitor. So all that information’s gonna go to my computer. It’s gonna tell me how hard I’m working, how much power I’m putting through the pedals, but also lots of detailed information on things like smoothness. So I’m trying to ride two really consistent laps with how much effort I’m putting in. And be able to go back to the Dirt Shed have a look at the stats to see if there is any difference between flats and clips.
