All it's good for is pretending that you produce more power than you actually do!
How close are they or not as the case may be? Reason I ask is I have a Tacx Fortius and train with power and HR, I have also done two VO2 max tests at a localish Uni in Essex (http://www.humanperformanceunit.co.uk/) and my outputs are pretty close, not as close to a SRM but within 3-4% which is good enough for me and I bought it NIB on ebay for under £500.00
Edit. I do warm up on it for 10-15mins then callibrate the brake each time i use it to get consistancy
How can you calibrate it if you are not using a power meter to compare it with?
