How Much Power? Find Out Here.

Tried this out just for fun, on yesterdays ride I purposely went up a particular hill with an 8% grade and at 3/4 way up took note of speed. Punched in numbers when I got home and saw I was producing well over 500watts, kinda cool.

According to that, I can gain 2.6 mph by riding in the drops...don't think so!

Have to be careful using it, too. I noticed when I click from "tops" to "drops", it resets the bike weight for some reason.

It always goes back to default settings. Not perfect just thought it was kinda neat.
