Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed ✔ FIXED
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken ✔ FIXED
- Avatars cannot be uploaded ✔ FIXED

Please note that we will soon do some changes in WW board template design in case to get a fully mobile/desktop responsiveness board!
If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Time to go back to school.

Nothing like a 6 week free class in aerodynamics.

First of all, let's get the terminology straight. It's AeroAirheads, which I suppose could use the acronym AA, and which I proposed over 7 1/2 years ago.
On July 1, 2006 in AeroAirheads, HammerTime2 wrote:
I propose a sister board "AeroAirheads", with a singular focus on bicycle aerodynamics, to include aerodynamic stiffness*. Weight, function, durability, maintainability, and ability to support power output must not be considered.

* Note that stiffness pertains to the range (scale) of eigenvalue magnitudes in a system under study. The wider the range of eigenvalues, the stiffer the system, and the more computationally challenging it is to analyze. So aerodynamic stiffness would pertain to the difference in magnitudes of interacting aerodynamic effects across various contributing factors. A true test of juanmoretime's course mastery will be when he can spell out the aerodynamic equivalent to the storied "laterally stiff while vertically compliant"

I enrolled too. Looking forward to participating. The engineering side will be tough but good brain exercise.

Nice find. I can add aerodynamisist to my linkedin profile.

I'm a jurist and know nothing about maths. Is enrolling futile? ;-)
