It's less of a story about PMs, and more about questionable business practices ....

Yep, being Scottish based I've been following with some interest and really hoping no one I ride with has invested. They recently released "data", read two poorly formatted excel graphs, to show their product was "close" to an SRM. It looked to be out by 50 watts in many places, sometimes even more.

Speed drops after 177kms, the sensor stopped working. The TSS of 401 is absolutely ballistic :eek:

Apparently in the last 2km a 10s power PB trying to shake Boonen. I watched Matt win 4 U19 Oceania Track and Road Titles in 1995. He was last in Paris Roubaix in 2008.

The power meter only tells the tip of the iceberg!
