Does your HRM record? Can you download data? I've used one for years, both in the gym and on the bike, and I know spot on just where my sustainable HR is - 153 bpm. After you use yours enough, you'll easily be able to perceive your threshold. You probably can now, and doing a flat ride, it should be easy to settle into a pace at the sustainable level. Good luck.
