I've done 89% for three hours. Took a few tries to build up to that, though (mainly figuring out the nutrition), and I was wrecked for a few days afterwards.

I got my first power meter in 2005 and I have never in my life done a steady state max one hour effort. My best 1 hour power was dong a few longer threshold efforts with z3 recovery with the odd...

No, it doesn't. Age and fitness really have nothing to do with it.

The whole 20 minute test was NEVER about 20 minutes anyway; it was about a 5 minute blow out effort and THEN 20 minutes max and...

Nope.

20 minutes tells you your 20 minute power. Want to get the most accurate FTP estimation, you need to actually do something in the 50-70 minute range

Ha. I edited my post about consistency/accuracy while you were apparently quoting it.

If both our powermeters are accurate, then you do know that your 300 is my 300.

Which is why accuracy is important. That you seemingly don't care about that doesn't change it. I care about it....

It seems you're saying you don't care about accuracy as long as you have consistency because you have 12-13 years worth of data using the same brand of powermeters.

Yet you apparently also...

My PT hub is on an aluminum rim. It's heavy, narrow, and doesn't match any of my front wheels. I don't particularly want to train on it because of that, and I definitely don't want to race on it when...

I keep thinking I won't use my G3 anymore, and I keep figuring out ways to need it (it's on my TT bike now). I'm going back and forth with rebuilding it in to a carbon aero rim...:)

I have looked...

SRM, Powertap, Quarq. (Also had a P2Max that was good, too).

Yes, well, that's the entire point of accuracy! That's what I'm saying. :thumb:

I currently have three different different power meters. In the past I've had several more. That they're all accurate is important, lest I have to start over with data accumulation and analysis for...

Sure. That's close enough to 1.5%, which is within the accuracy range of the power meter itself anyway.

If it's consistently calibrated against a known weight, then it's also accurate.

So again, you just start over with the data?

If you're using a power meter to "track fitness", though, maybe this is all beyond your training requirements, anyway.

The accuracy isn't important? What happens when you use a powermeter outside? Or get a new trainer? Just resign yourself to starting all over with the data?

Accuracy is vitally important.

At that altitude, was there significant altitude-induced power loss happening over that last hour plus?

I know of one 19ish year old Cat 4 with well north of a 300 watt threshold (he recently did 400 for 20 minutes at ~170 lbs), but he won't be a cat 4 for very long. Or a 3, either.

I'd say a good...
