Hmm. I've done a fair amount of FTP testing and I'm not sure about the weight x 2 estimation, Joe. It certainly 'feels' like such a quick and dirty FTP estimate is difficult and prone to a wide range of interpretation errors. E.G. I am 178lbs (80.74kg) and currently have a 30' threshold of 295-300 watts, determined using a 30' computrainer-based test on a flat course (i.e. no hills). Using the "quick and dirty" method of weight x 2, I can tell you there is NO way I'm hitting 356 watts as my threshold, probably ever. And you preach power-to-weight anyway as the key metric, so isn't FTP somewhat irrelevant as a standalone number?' -Henry
