    At 9MPH (= about 14km/h), on a steep climb, the frame rate should be about 20-24 frames per second. We film at 60 frames per second and drive slowly wherever we can (it's not always possible unfortunately) to keep the frame in the simulation at a good level.

    If you are a mammoth snail like I am, even at 10-12 fps or 5-7kmh (going by the info ibooij supplied), I find it is not that bad on the steeper climbs due to the higher resolution.

    The only time I notice the slow down is when a car comes the other way, which does look a bit odd but is obviously unavoidable.

    Quick Q - anyone know which courses have step sections of 15% + ? Want to try some beast climbs that last about 1 hour in total.

    Magnolia has 15%+ within the first 1k. Good luck :unsure:

    Did a bit of climbing tonight on BRVR using the Kickr, and my god is this harder than the Bkool Pro ever was. The 8%+ sections really do hurt now. Slight problem of belt slippage still when over 10% but not too bad and I may be able to tighten the belt a smidge to resolve this. Should be really good training for the Double Devils, and getting some climbing metres into my legs!

    Yes, bit of a shock doing these climbing routes on the Kickr compared to the Pro. Definitely feels so much harder. Need to get some serious training in though for the DD .... by the way, you not tempted to join us this year? 5 months to get ready for it :okay:

    I did a ride last Friday after updating the software, I didn't realise at the time that I needed to sync Strava and BR again so as a consequence that ride is not on Strava, is it possible to put it on there now?

    I do want to be there but I doubt I'll drop enough weight to do anything but walk. I'm getting smaller but not quick enough :sad:.
