Clutching at straws here, but is there anyone who started out on Zwift with the original Jetblack Fluid (pre-dates the Z1 & Z2) and rode with it connected as “Z1” - and has since upgraded to a supported trainer?
The reason I ask is I’m curious to know how the numbers stacked up against a properly-supported trainer?
I’ve got mine set as “Z1” only to get some ‘reasonable’ numbers; I primarily do workouts, sometimes just ride - I’ve *never* entered any sort of event or group ride. Not that I’d make an impact anyway, I took a stab at an FTP of 160W (~1.7W/kg) and still can’t hold 2x 240W for 1 minute, and the 480W 10s intervals are a pipe-dream, though the sweet-spot interval @145W is getting fairly easy now.
Sadly, for now, a power meter or other supported trainer is just not an option (mine was gifted). I’m a noob but having great fun in Zwift - even just the workouts - but now curiosity is getting the better of me and I’m dying to get some sort of idea how much (little?) power I’m actually producing! At least using “Z1” I can tailor my workouts to my own fake numbers, even if the power curve is not linearly proportional to my trainer.
