rotor-challenge-finger-pedal-contest-2015-12

Ready to put those internet warrior skills to the test? Rotor is giving away a set of their new InPower cranksets to the fastest fingers. Just pedal with the keyboard arrows to send your rider up a road climb, and if your time is the best, you win. They’re also giving away a few Rotor shop aprons for runners up and other participants. Screenshots with my time (and yes, I broke a sweat…kind of embarrassing) after the break…

Um, yeah. With the current best time at 42.2 seconds, I’m way off the mark with my best time:

Fortunately, you get two tries per day until the contest ends. Hint: My speed seemed to hold at the fastest level pedaled, so get off to a super quick start and it’ll make a big difference. Head over to Challenge.Rotorbike.com to play.

It only took me 2’16” to pedal up it using only the right arrow. I wonder if that means a one-legged person could climb a quarter as fast as a two-legged person.

I just held down the keys and got 49 sec

Heh. Just holding down the right button gave me 50 seconds.

no matter what I do or how fast I press, the best time is always when I just hold down one key, once I hit 21kph, I can stop doing anything and watch him fly. Is that how rotor cranks work? Just get it up to speed then kick back?

One of the dumbest online interactive experiences yet.

@Rixter, yeah, but for a set of cranks for being the fastest at hitting a couple of keys, that’s a pretty good payoff. Though it doesn’t seem as if this is the best way to collect peoples email addresses…why would anyone put their info in, unless they beat the best posted time?

Tried this at work and on my crappy home computer, both times by just holding down an arrow key.

The crappy home computer was 15 seconds slower. So the fastest computer will win, nothing to do with the fingers. If you have a screaming gamer PC I think you will do well.

Yeah looks like:

-Hold down your keys is the fastest way possible
-Computer heavily dictates how much lag you’ll get for accelerating and those intermittent messages. Today I was at a 2 minute pace because the clock kept running while the ads just froze the progress

Not really the most refined game.

It has nothing to do with computer if the computer is fast enough. Got 5yrs old gaming pc and runs it exactly at same speed as my 2months old laptop.

Isn’t the speed entirely dependent on your bandwidth and the lag in your service?

even custom editing keyboard repeat rate down to 1ms (so 1000 per second) hits a limit of ~21kph … so anyone going faster than high 40s is doing something else.
