    Not to steal an idea/thread from Xela, but hell, it was a good idea...I did some research into my training device; the Kurt Kinetic Road Machine and found that they have a simple formula for calculating power from the speed of the rear wheel.

    If you have a Kurt Kinetic trainer and want to know what type of power your putting out, here is the link Kinetic by Kurt: Power Curve.

    They claim that it will be accurate to +- 3%.

    I am going to test out the forumlas this weekend when I attack The Sufferfest videos and I will post the results.

    I paid attention to my sustained speed during the 1 min, 30 sec, and 15 sec intervals during The Downward Spiral. Maybe I'll wait to see yours before posting mine. :)

    Actually I'll just PM you so my numbers aren't out there for all to laugh at.
