Any one used Trainerroad.com

I m seriously thinking of investing in a Turbo after what a wash out this Winter/ Spring was.

I ve read some bits on the interweb, that by buying a compatible Turbo and getting an Ant sensor/Usb and running a piece of Software called Traineroad.com you can get fairly consistent power measurements.

Basically they have an algorithm which equates the Turbos power curve to an equivalent Wattage.

Has anyone used this and have any insight in how easy it is to set-up or if its even worth while in the first place.

Thanks (Genuinely) I feel a right tit now.

Just goes to show this Forum really is about Cycling and I should spend less time on Cake and B/B.

I used it a couple of times last winter just as a bit of a motivation tool.
At the end of the day, its just turbo time.
I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
