    Readers. Not as exciting as most of the stuff in here but I will be racing it. Stem should go full slammed once an injury I have clears up fully.

    I think I spotted @skinny earlier today near the top of Wendover woods/Aston hill looking very aero?

    I don't mind it being inaccurate but mine doesn't even seem to be consistent!

    Yours was overestimating by 20%ish whish would put me down to a much more realistic 270w.

    I've just ordered a new frame when I perhaps should of got a PM instead. No chance of finding a cheap PM so I might look for a cheap smart trainer instead.

    Cheers, I'll try and keep tyre pressures consistent. Mine is Mag with resistance adjuster via a cable, I guess the cable could of even stretched. Oh well, i'll just have to deal with the large numbers until I can get a smart trainer or PM or something.

    How unreliable is virtual power?

    Here are some numbers;
    FTP test on new years day : 262w
    Manually adjusted FTP 2 weeks later as workouts were very easy : 275w
    FTP test Monday(13th FEB) : 338w

    Now, as much as I'd like to believe I'm pushing out 4.7w/kg I'm pretty sure I'm not. I know I tested badly on new years day, and I know I felt really good on Monday, but what else could be going on here? Could my turbo of lost some resistance in the past 6 weeks? Something else changed that could make this much difference? tyre pressure? It doesn't matter too much as I am only currently using power within trainerroad at the moment and won't be able to get a powermeter any time soon.

    Interested on how you carry maple syrup? Squeezy bottle? I've swapped from gels to Lucho Dillitos recently and don't think i'll be going back to gels.
