Of course there is always exceptions to any rule but generally a 92-95kg rating weight isn't ideal.
Yeah and I was probably 20kg lighter than you when you won in shannonside and I couldn't hold your wheel at the finish.
I think youll be just fine

Brailsford giving it a go, but Mr Marginal Gains not understanding "Power Match"

And Ted King too apparently. They make a big deal of them not paying anyone to use the software, so no sponsored athletes like other options...

Depends on power smoothing, doesn't it, and I think the kickr is particularly known for that? He was using the turbo power, not his stages. Or maybe he has a really smooth pedal action.

Anyone using trainer road with an ant+ tablet? Currently using with a laptop and ant+ key but looking at changing my set up around. Have used with a bluetooth phone and the kickr and worked well but power meter is ant+ only so if I could get a tab with ant+ on it it would be great. From my quick search it seems like mainly samsung tabs that have it enabled.

i tried first time with my amazon fire last night. it picked up bluetooth no issue and power readings went through on trainer road from kickr. but there was no ant+ shwoing even though i'd downloaded the app. not sure why that was so please help techies. wasn't picking up cadence or speed it seemed as a result. didn't have my hrm with me so can't tell if that was missing too. i have basic knowledge of some vital cycling technological advance, apologies

I'm not 100% sure the amazon fire tablet has ant+, so you can download the app for it but the tablet itself doesn't have the ant+ receiver.

This is a list I found of tablets that have ant+ receivers in them. I think for most you would probably still need to install the app also. I'm not sure if this is a complete list but was all I could find.

Nearest I've done is a tablet (and phone) with Ant+ Dongle and an OTG cable. There's an Ant+ Tester App, which steps you through all the other installs your device needs.

If the hardware is built in then there are no issues using TR with ant+ on android. I've run it this way on an android phone before. That said Bluetooth is more reliable if you have that option available.
