I'm right on topic, IMO
I have an objective on 70.3.
It is my pleasure to have a relatively sophisticated training plan, and to use all marginal gains I can get, with a limited budget of my choice.
Any statement such as "you can ignore this gain because... whatever blabla", I consider of little interest.
Instead of ignoring some accessibles marginal gain, I prefer to ignore this "10 watt rule".
After 3 pages of thread, have not seen a single good reason to consider it.
Annnd still dodges the question of what those nice upgrades you did and how effective they were.
It's not a hard question, and no, I'm not asking it to be obtuse.
If someone says they made marginal gains they were happy with and had good results, I and sure many others are all ears, even if we ourselves aren't currently interested in certain equipment upgrades (like a faster Tririg front brake or hidden front cables or new aero helmet) ourselves.
I myself have aero helmet, aero wheels (FLO), carbon aerobars, Cervelo P2c frame, aerobar-BTA bottle. I wouldn't be heartbroken or not make the podiums I made if you took any of those away from me, or even made me go road bike sans aerobars. Again, I'm not a FOPer, if you were contending for KQ etc, you'd better max out all the aero goodies.
