I’ve recently bought this new trainer and immediately tried it with Zwift. I’ll try to describe the problem I’ve stumbled upon and would like to ask, if it’s a trainer’s specifics, or Zwift’s one.
Imagine I ride on flat, say 90rpm and 250w. Now the hill comes, the resistance increases and I stand up, drop my rpm to 65-75 and would like to continue riding standing for a while applying more power, say 350w. But after a small lag what trainer does, seeing that my cadence has dropped, it lowers the resistance making me unable to ride standing any more since it’s becoming way too easy. Is there a way to avoid this? Does this happen with all FE-C trainers? Should I change the setting to a “classic” trainer?
Similar experience happened while doing an FTP test in Zwift, I was trying to hold my 270watts while seating and after each 5 mins performed some quick bursts while standing to engage different muscles and relax quads, but the trainer was doing the same, lowering the resistance as soon as I started riding with lower cadence. I think it negatively affected my ftp result.
Do you have a similar experience, any suggestions?
