    Yeah, that doesn't sound right.

    For what it's worth, every Continental tubular that I've ever used holds air for a week. I could pump it to 150psi and 3 days later it might be at 140.

    Scar,

    Don't get defensive. We've all been training with power meters for a long time and anomalies occur all the time.

    Your top 8 max power numbers from that file are:

    577
    950
