  1. I'm really loving training on my new Cycleops Jetfluid IDT. It is an upgrade from a spinning bike I had and the ability to see real effort (read watts) instead of perceived effort is fantastic. I'm sure that I'll see real benefits very quickly. I'm using the Virtual Training software on PC Dave from Bicycle Power gave me a great spreadsheet to convert RPE to Watts for the Sufferfest videos and this is a great feature. It looks something like this: RPE Watts Percentage 3.0 100 50% 3.5 111 56% 4.0 123 61% 4.5 134 67% 5.0 146 73% 5.5 157 79% 6.0 169 84% 6.5 180 90% 7.0 191 96% 7.5 203 101% 8.0 214 107% 8.5 226 113% 9.0 237 119% 9.5 249 124% 10.0 260 130% My question: When riding a downloaded route on VR is there a corelation between Grade/Slope and Watts? So, for example when VR riding a 7% gradient, what should the RPE or Watts be? I'm not sure the question is logical or intelligible.
  2. G'day Hubbers, Could anyone please give advice on a PowerBeam Pro VS. i420 indoor cycle. I have very little IDT experience I only ride MTB so I think it would be good using PowerBeam trainer so I still sit on a MTB, while on a i420 cycle it is more road setup. But would you get the same training from a PowerBeam Pro vs. i420 indoor cycle. i420 is heavy so I feel you could work harder I don't believe cost would be that big differance cos if I buy a a PowerBeam Pro I would still want a new rear wheel with slick tyre + I'm running X01 so that means wheel with X01 cassette. Then also extra miles on your bike = servicing. And is it good to have your carbon frame clamped down while your going working hard on bike ...must be a lot more stress on frame?
