FWIW, my lab-tested max-hr is 205. I usually max out around 198 in races but have hit 204 a few times this year.

The problem with finding your real max hr is in order to hit your real max you have to dig really deep into the pain cave, and most people stare into that pit of darkness and shy away.
i must find the pain cave this weekend.

later.
