    Is it a fair representation of real life distance and mph?

    distance and MPH should be accurate, assuming they use an average size bike tire diameter. rest of it is just simple math.

    its the stuff that is specific to the rider, ie heart rate, calories burned that is BS (beyond comparison purposes)
