Power Meter Advice
I am considering the purchase of a power meter but had a few questions.
1. Is it really worth it? I train by HR now, is it really that much more effective?
2. I live in San Francisco and have a hard time finding outdoor rides to do for base miles that don't raise my HR into zone 4/5 (Darn hills . . .). Most of my base training is done on a trainer. How helpful is it to have the power measurement on the road from a Powertap Vs just having a trainer with power measurement?
3. If I decide to go with a meter instead of a trainer with power(Cycleops PowerBeam Pro), any thoughts on a Powertap Vs a Polar CS600? The thought of the extra weight on the rear wheel sucks, but I probably won't even notice it . . .
Thanks for any and all insight!
