    Andrew Coggan basically agrees with you, but it's pretty limited as to where it would be useful:

    Estimating VO2max from power data: why bother?

    Since it is the actual power that a cyclist...

    You'll see whether what your doing is effective in your FTP and other power numbers.

    I suppose if your FTP was an abnormally low percentage of your power at V02 max, it could tell you that you're...

    Its not really even useful for training as a competitive athlete.

    What does it mean:

    1) you'll never win the Tour de France,

    2) depending on the number, you may or may not be able to lord it over your friends.

    I have a HED3 wheel on my TT bike. We'll likely use that, or the Zipp 808 on our current tandem for TT's with the new tandem.
