I’m new to my Smart Bike and Zwift… wasn’t able to find a similar issue but suspect that’s because its user error!
When riding a route in Zwift (Not a Training session) I find that if I maintain the same cadence and don’t change gear my speed dramatically increases… why?
I have a possibly related observation when climbing a hill, I shift down a gear and only for a few seconds does it make a difference, but then the same resistance applies - even when I’m in my lowest possible gear… where naturally I should be putting in high cadence numbers but hardly moving! In this instance, it almost feels like I change down, but Zwift slowly just increases resistance because it wants me to struggle.
Any guidance or suggestions appreciated.
