I have a ROTOR INPOWER on BMC Timemachine with the ROTOR Q-rings. I do my calibration fairly frequently - not everytime but often.
Today I got the reading 1000 and then 9
My training has been going really well - FTP numbers looking really good and healthy - I normally do all my training alone but today rode in a group - when on the ride - I was comparing my data to friends who were using Garmin Vector pedals - after 1.5hr I had NP of 286 and he had 216!!! I weigh 82-83kg and he 75!
I compared to data on another friend also using Garmin pedals at the same - he’s heavier than me and was riding along at 190w whilst my power read 260!
I ve been thinking Im really strong but it seems something is amiss with my power as I definitely wasn’t stronger than my friends when I normally am. In fact Ive had the Inpower 3yrs or so - always felt it was a bit more generous than my previous PowerTap hub 10-15w but otherwise ok. But when I reflect on last seasons racing - it was like this every race - numbers “looked” good but I didn’t seem to be moving as fast in the field as I expected
What am I missing?
