The more efficient metabolism gets fat with the fewest calories. The fattest for the same intake and output are the most efficient. Ask Indurain.

When my kid was going to do the pursuit I was going to convert his FELT TT bike. I got some grief for that in the track forum. It was just a cheaper way to start. I bought the good wheel.

To change the subject a wee bit, a good aero position and some head tucking and helmet can easily get you that 7w. You could likely drop 20W and be faster. If you can hold 25MPH now, it is rare...

How are we on ITT and short power now? The TT and power are not the same. You win the TT on speed. Power is a factor, speed is the measure. The position is a compromise for most (esp. under UCI...

I think it is pretty accurate for elite cyclists and pros. For others, it is useless. My peak power is 20% less what it was 30 years ago. My 20 min is depressing. My hour is tourist level.

They are great. I bought gen 1 and they required tweaking and calibration, but a great value and worked. I didn't like the pods on the Vectors. They use the Keo (not Shimano) cleats.

Capable of (after a year or so of training) and being able to do it now are different. So are calculations on the 20 min power vs actually doing 300W for a whole hour. I guess I don't get Zwift.
