    PMed. Suppose it's always an option to rebuild the workouts anyway.

    Does TrainerRoad supply outdoor versions of their workouts now? I'd quite like to give it a go, but I'm trying to avoid indoor bicycle riding as much as possible. Has anyone got a free trial going spare?

    It'd be from a cross race, so very spikey.

    324w actual, 335w normalised, Coggan weighted at 363w (definetly not happening). I've been using 321w for training for the past month, so I suppose I should push it up 5w at least.

    I should probably just do a proper test, but, 🤮.

    Is it reasonable to base my FTP on a hour long race effort? if so, should I be using actual or normalised?

    All good news. I'll be traveling slow most of the time, so it sounds like a good thing.

    Is using an SP PD-8 on a 20" wheel likely to cause issues? I note that they do a small wheel version, but I don't already own it.

    Is there anywhere (free) online I can create workouts for a Edge 800 and export in a .fit format?

    That center of gravity thing is the cargo bike equivalent to "you need a steel bike for touring".

    Have you previously feared for your life when carrying heavy weights on your Omnium?

    I've certainly felt a fair amount of flex from the front end when loaded up (admittedly probably close to or exceeding the maximum weight specifications), and it's not as stable, or as nice to ride as a bullitt, when loaded.

    My thinking too. I've ridden both non-assisted before, and own a Omnium, but I think for more heavy duty lugging around the Bullitt is worth opting for.

    Anyone with real world experience between an electric Omnium and the Bullitt?

    Leaning towards the e8000 Bullitt, but there is a £1500 price difference between the two.
