Hello guys, so, heres my story/question
I have an Elite Drivo and a Tacx Neo. I’ve done FF with both trainers and get an FTP of 193 and 195.
seems pretty constant and all ok.
Now, lets go ride outside.
There is a very famous segment in my city that I can complete in about 22mins. so its perfect to do an outside ftp test. right?
I’ve done it several several times using a Powertap G3 powermeter, and Wahoo Bolt.
I finish it with an average power of 240W
I’ve read that you can produce more Watts outside than inside, so I was OK with these results for about a year.
2 weeks ago, I forgot to check the batteries of the G3, and it was dead… So I simply went to ride, do my segment as ussual, and keep having fun.
When checking on strava, I did a PR!!! but my estimated power (I have my correct weight and bikes weight) was 197W!! pretty similar to what FF says!!!
now I dont know what to believe… Is the Strava estimation better than the actual power meter I use?
Any ideas? …
