Zwift shows the value of aero carbon. My Zwift bike is lighter, my Zwift 808s are more aero (and they never cause any handling problems) and my Zwift avatar rides more aero than I often do.

All the same, yeah, it does seem like I'm doing 1-2 mph faster in Zwift than I do IRL at the same effort on the flat. I put my Zwift rides in my training log, and I record mileage, but I discount the Zwift miles to be as low or lower than the same effort would have gotten me outside.

I zero out the climbing too. But I don't discount miles on Zwift climbing courses. I'll record the full miles heading up to the Watopia radio tower. Climbing seems slower in Zwift than IRL.
