Just finished my second Zwift workout and I can’t tell if I’m doing things right.
I have a Kickr Smart Trainer (v5) connected to a MacBook Air via Bluetooth. When I’m pedaling things appear to be relatively normal, I can usually match the power and cadence indicated at that point in my workout for a limited duration, but oftentimes I’ll begin to pedal a bit harder and my power will be way out of proportion to my cadence. When I slow down my cadence the Kickr will need to spin on its own for a few seconds until I can resume spinning with some resistance (which I noticed makes Zwift think I’m at zero power). I had ERG mode on for my most recent ride and I’m pretty sure it was on for my first ride as well. I tried Sufferfest for a couple days and noticed a similar issue, which makes me believe the problem is me not the trainer/apps.
Is this the way things are supposed to work?
Should I adjust the settings (either in the Zwift app or Wahoo app) and/or do I need another piece or hardware?
Thanks in advance for the help!
