David,

Good stuff, but one point: if you use a trainer or other stationary device to determine your threshold, make sure you find a very large box fan to ventilate yourself with. I've seen studies (it's been a while, don't ask me for a link) that found around a 20% drop in power with inadequate cooling.

Just like a car engine, you want plenty of airflow when you're going full blast.

Good point. Your mileage definitely may vary on this one - my highest 5, 10 and 30 minute power scores are on a trainer, but I've heard some people use an outside and an inside threshold, inside being lower. My elaborate cooling system consists of a 15" fan.
