On my friend’s Cycleops Hammer my FTP is @135, which makes sense since his is a little over 200 and he’s a much stronger rider than I am. I mean, I’m 71 and average @15 mph.
But on my unsmart Nashbar my FTP is 208.
So I borrowed another friend’s (Yes, I have more than one) 1Up and had such a goofy ride in NYC that Training Peaks upped me to 291.
Help! Is there an un-smart trainer that is close to being accurate?? I’m thinking about a Cycleops Fluid 2.
Or should I just stick with my good old Nashbar and consider the numbers relative rather than absolute.
Thanks for any thoughts.
