HOLY WATTS BATMAN!!

I had to post a quick update in regards to my new bike. I hooked her up to my Computrainer and could not believe the spike in my wattage output!!!!! I mean serious increase people!!!

I did this one set where normally I would be around 170 - 185 Watts, today, I was doing 280 - 300 watts. Pedaling is so much easier, spinning is so much easier -- even my left knee has healed. I used to experience quite a bit of pain in my left knee, and just since riding my new bike, the pain has disappeared.

I LOVE MY NEW BIKE AND I LOVE BOW CYCLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! You have nearly doubled your power output to the back wheel, and are probably putting less muscular effort into the pedals, due to mechanical efficiency improvements.

Look out world at your next race!
