  1. Christian, I caved in and got a Tacx Vortex, so I'm on real power now. My first ride was at 3.09 w/kg UCI course 2 laps, so you just need to downgrade me now to B :).

    1. How do you like the controllable resistance? It's kind of a shame the Ant+ resistance units for the InsideRide rollers aren't coming out so you could both have rollers and variable resistance.

  2. How do I like it ? Mixed feelings still, as I have to shift gears frequently and it's harder overall, but at least gives me real power numbers, and I'm not the pariah in Zwift ;). I'll certainly go back to rollers for non-race workouts.

  3. Christian,
    1. regarding today ZTR Americas: I've been suspicious of rider Urushihara; 54kg female, beating the best guys on the climbs and in races. Is this person legit ?
    2. I asked about my strange looking power zones on zwiftpower (since I switched from rollers to smart trainer, and when with a HRM), but never got a reply. Can you explain it ?

    1. Sorry, since the switch to Zwiftpower for result generation I haven't been very good at checking for comments here.

      I have my suspicions about Urushihara, but there is no concrete evidence, so there's not any basis for action.

      As to the power curve - I missed the question, but I suspect what may be going on is that Zwiftpower is using your old FTP for zones. Try tagging James Hodges on Facebook for help on - he's its creator.

  4. Cool, thanks for sharing useful information!
