Hi there. Having some issues when climbing using the Tacx Vortex.
For whatever reason, I can be in the small ring, or big ring, pedaling at minimum 70RPM or over 100RPM, and I always end up traveling around 3-4MPH. Doesn’t matter what I do. Some notes:
- I have the vortex properly calibrated, if anything it’s a little too ‘tight’, because if I loosen it, the rear wheel slips.
- In the big ring the RPMs often drop off to zero readings.
- I’ve tried keeping wattage between 150-200W in different rings, on inclines of ~6%, but the speed remains the same, even if I increase cadence.
- My average is 2.0 - 2.5W/kg when I ride. Not a newbie, but certainly no expert!
Hoping someone with experience on the Vortex can help. Do I need another sensor? I’d like to make progress on improving my times on the Epic KOM - but no matter what I do I always end up riding around the same speed up the mountain!
Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can give!
