    No.

    Changing the weight limit is pointless. Any such arms race will be over before it begins.

    They'll all use bikes that are as light as possible, and will always go for a power meter. No...

    Yes, it's nice. But a bit far for a daily workout, even if you don't go up Alpine.

    The "400 watts" thing was pretty much always about making fun of R600DuraAce. It has no real connection to anyone's athletic abilities.
