Just a bit of nonsense really but I was in the gym on one of the exercise bikes and watching one of the Sufferfest videos. One of the exercises had increasing RPM until it got up to 240!

Obviously I never got anywhere near that, I think I maxed out just over 160 but I was wondering what was the most anyone had obtained on an exercise bike or turbo. I don`t have any sort of cadence counter for my outdoor bikes but I would guess I still wouldn`t be any where near 240rpm!

Ive hit 175rpm for micro bursts on a trainer. I know the odd rider nudging 200 rpm. I dont put much value to the top number. I feel upto 150 is more than sufficient to train nervous system to react fast. I rarely go above 110 in training sessions

Yeah, I normally stick to around 110/120 and can hit 150/160 when flat out sprinting. And like you, i`m not particularly bothered about the top number, it just seemed to me that 240 was completely nuts lol
