I know you can choose whether ERG mode is on or off before starting a workout which is cool; some want it, some don’t.
Now what would be even better is to be able to disable the ERG mode for *specific* blocks of the workout.
Indeed, the thing with Smart Trainers is that there *is* lag in adjusting resistance which is fine for blocks longer that ~45 seconds but when you are expected to ride 10s at a very high wattage, it is difficult for the trainer to adjust and then for you to adjust the cadence to that new resistance.
Also, these short intervals being, more often than not, very high wattages, the very accurate wattage matters very little : if your FTP is at 280W and you are expected to ride 10s @660W, that is just a way to say : give it all you got for 10s.
With that large jumps, the adjustments of smart trainers are difficult to manage when on the bike and the intervals often turn out to be not as good as expected.
In the same time, ERG is really cool for keeping a steady wattage for an extended amount of time.
Which leads me to my request that is to be able in the edition of a workout, to disable the ERG mode on specific blocks rather than a global setting on the whole workout.
