[quote="Alistar"]I'm quite interested in how your guys power extrapolates into pure speed...So how fast can you guys get up to, say in a solo 20/30s sprint in kph? Non tailwind...


phoo thats a tough question. You're just gonna have to get a powermeter!! :)

If you wanna get a feeling for what the power numbers mean on the road in a theoretical way have a look at the toolkit here - can be fun to play around with:

You surely could, you just might need the right motivation. But, hmm, if you can't, you are correct: time to go back to your knitting! :)

Hey fredrikw, should we restart this as a table within the thread (or another)? I don't imagine DaveNoisy is going to maintain this anymore.

Good idea MrC. I think a new thread, with the table included in the first post (instead of the external link) is a better solution. Would you like to take care of this?

excellent!

I think it makes the most sense having someone with a power meter taking care of this, I do proper (=calibrated) power tests two times a year, hardly qualifying for anything even close to this :)
