When I train it, vo2 is by far the strongest part of my power curve. I just prefer the mild nut tap that is an ftp workout to the full on kick in the groin that is vo2.

This thread is confusing. It's not like everyone and their mother can do it, but 300w doesn't make you a unicorn unless you weigh like 120lbs. It's almost trivial in NEBRA/NYSBRA.

Interesting, I find my G3 agrees with my Quarq dFour almost to the watt. I have no idea if my Direto is accurate or not, I only use it for terrain simulation (I pair my Quarq to Zwift for power).
