Earlier when I rode, the wattage was way off (as in the ability to hold over 2000 watts for my 5 second average). It sustained that what seemed to be the whole time of that ride. I have only noticed this one time before, but it was only in one spot, and was gone the next time that I rode and didn’t think anything about it. So to back track, every time before I ride, I calibrate the Computrainer with the ride over 25mph procedure. It has always been under 3 lbs. of force for the loop. I think is was somewhere around 2.7 today. So after a couple of loops, I shut it down, and tried the same procedure again. This time it showed on the underside of 5 lbs. and I had not adjusted the dial. I unplugged everything, waited a while, then tried it all again. It worked that time with under a 2.5 lb reading that time. When I got back on, it was okay the second time and was much more like it should be.
So, does someone think that this was solely a Computrainer problem? It’s the first that I have seen anything like this.
