Yesterday I joined the PowerTap club
cult. My wife snapped this picture of me activating the "Pro" setting. I can't tell you about all the wonders it unlocks because, well, if you're a pro you already know and if you're not, sorry.
I used the wheel for the first time today on the Napa ride and was blowing Staz 08
out of the water. I don't know if it was due to the Prolong Energy
I've been trying or just the standard boost that everyone gets once they start using a PowerTap.
I may share some power graphs later. I just need to figure out how to scale up the data by 10 or 15 percent. PowerAgent doesn't seem to have that feature.

Alright PM... Get ready to give up riding
as you knew it! Power will now control everything. It going to start to tell you when to eat, sleep, and well other things. Trust me, I'm married to a wife that trains with POWER! Is that a good thing.... Hmmmm Maybe!
PS. I noticed on your powertap that it's got your rider status already entered... Nice

As an addict to Powertaps (3+ years and going strong...), the purchase of WKO+ is valuable. Also, if you really want to get your head spinning, check out the wattage google group. Hunter Allen, Andy Coggan (the authors of "Training and Racing with a Power Meter") are regular contributors.
