04/13/13 caveat to Brourman above: The 15 to 20 degree turned out footfall position shown on page 27 (position a) remains questionable, and I am currently coming down on the side of a neutral straight forward footfall (position c). I have yet to find a rational discussion derived from a study of the internal foot structures that is not attached to selling an associated product. Here's the closest to rational YouTube video example.

SlingShot's  Super Simple Power to Weight Calculator - Now with Race Category, watt to speed and elapsed time to terminal velocity calculations.

Bicycle Power and Speed Calculator - Once there, click on the image of the calculator.

* Cycling Power while Climbing Calculator - SlingShot's Tip: Use 100% grade at .489 mph for how many watts required to bench press a weight.

* Unfortunately, as of 01/17/12 the Climbing calculator has been removed from the web. If anybody knows where it has gone, let me know. In the meantime use my own that I developed to replace the missing link above. See: Power while Climbing Calculator.
