  1. Splendid vid, as usuall. Ony one issue – could you please level up the theme song with the rest of the video? Here in Europe we do receive your uploads in the evening, watching it (at least me) in the bed. Sudden change in the volume are waking up the kids:) Thanks!

  2. Great idea and content !
    one thing I didn't quite get is about fore/aft saddle position: which points on the leg do you choose to draw your line (pedal/hip?)

  3. Thanks Taren, Really looking forward to these videos… although I don't have pains from cycling, I am often travelling so using different gym bikes. Always annoying to be sure set up new bike right before workout.
    cheers

  4. Saddle height is very important, I am getting some left knee pain and I think my saddle is too high, before it was A LOT power and was giving me IT band pains.

  6. Proper bike fit is so cheap compared to price of a bike or a wheelset, it's the best possible bike upgrade anyone can get, and it should be done right after buying a bike.

  8. Complete side note here – and something i also noticed from other videos: The Ventum just about disappears when on a trainer…craziness! Such a brilliant design.

  9. Hey taren. So iv recently started kick boxing and I would like to know if the extra muscle mass effecting my weight can negatively impact my triathlon performance (specifically my run). Thanks.

  10. What about seat/leg position if you're not running afterwards? For a time trial for example. Would you be so far forward?

  11. Great video Taren, Im learning a lot, would you be able to go further into detail on the explanation at 6:12. I understand a vertical line over a slanted line but is this judged from the tip of the saddle to the toe or the middle of the saddle to the middle of the foot
