Hi all. Given my spate of flats lately (always at the bottom of a descent...) I was interested in how much I was heating up my rims through braking. So I pulled together a quick power calculator. I know there's a number of engineers among us, so thought folks might find this interesting (sorry if this is a "been there, done that" thing - I couldn't find anything online that worked well)
The cells in orange are inputs. The coefficients of wind resistance and rolling resistance came from internet sources but seem to work when compared to other online calculators. The calculation of time/acceleration seems a bit slow, I need to work on that one a bit more.
File should be attached, hope that works.Bike Energy
