    Palmer lake is fun. I did it in 2 chunks due to an interruption from HID ... Must do it again and get it in one.

    :secret:.........:secret::laugh:..........:secret::laugh::rofl:.................:secret::laugh::rofl::scratch:..............................no 'kin way do I have an FTP of 262 watts :blink::huh::ohmy:.

    @Jim Brown might want me to stop using this pro.:unsure: :whistle:

    I think I need to repair my classic and get back to using it. I know it's out but I'm not surprised @bobinski sold this pro to me :unsure: :gun: :banghead: :surrender:.

    Still, it has changed my rating to Am 2 :wahhey: :blush: :headshake:.

    Where's that emoji keyboard when you need it :cry:

    Cruising @320w is just not on and I mean cruising/trudling. The garmin was showing 150-180w, bsim on the pro 300-340w. At one stage it was 400+ watts on bsim :blink:. It's no longer I'm Spartacus, it's I'm Froome :headshake:

    I did that and it stayed the same :sad:.
    I really don't want to try it there. I enjoy, :unsure:, the struggle on the climbs with the classic. Using the pro with it like this would be a waste of good BRVR routes.
    I've got to sort the classic out, probably Saturday I'll give it a go. Or maybe pre-order some kit from Wahoo :unsure:

    Bit of the infamous bkool fairy dust? attached is file for one of my last rides on the pro in bkool in nov 2016 showing a normalised power of 265w.
    I would persevere and you may see it reset itself. Or find you are a bit stronger than you thought? 10 min in brvr should tell you too?

    More like Miracle Grow. I've been running a power meter along side the classic and there's about a 10-20w difference dependent on course. No way should I have a 100w+ difference. The Pro gives me a work out but not anything like the classic. I'll give it another go tomorrow and try to sort the classic Saturday.

    Nice stats on stage 37 @theboxers - You’re magic at the moment. I was going to invite you to ride the last stage with me but having seen your recent power readings, I think I’ll do it alone anyway.. :tongue:
