No. It's modest. The top guys are sub 10 seconds for 200m on the Wattbike. I've done around 10.3 myself.

I saw a Martyn Wilson had added a 12.2 to the Concept 2 BikeErg rankings a few days ago. Was this you? Wattbike 200s are far faster than BikeErg 200s. The rankings are for BikeErg only.

The only difference between Wattbike Trainer and Pro is the Pro is geared more stiffly.

You can't compare mph on one random gym bike to another. You need to look at watts and peak watts to make a better comparison. MPH on a static machine can be quite arbitrary anyway. It's really all about the watts, assuming they're accurate!

Go on a Wattbike and see how many watts you can average for say 30 seconds or 1 minute.
