OK, this will be a rather heated post but…
I just finished YET ANOTHER dumpster fire of a ride…This whole thing is furious exercise in futility…
So, here’s the CONTINUING issue…The resistance is almost exactly 180 degrees off, for example, when I’m pedaling UP a +6 grade, there is little (or zero) resistance, and then when I’m heading down like maybe a -4 degree grade I get the “uphill resistance”… it doesn’t matter what % the incline/decline is, the trainer basically gives me the opposite resistance…It does this the ENTIRE ride, and at this point I’d like to cancel my Zwift membership and take my trainer and throw it straight out the window… /rant.
OK so tech specs…
Apple TV 4K running current app version.
Android phone also running current companion app version. (same issue with the wife and her iPhone companion).
Saris M2 with the latest firmware (calibrated with the Saris app).
It does this whether I pair the trainer directly to the Apple TV, or pair it through the companion app.
It doesn’t do it every ride, but it does it frequently enough…I’d say 40% of my rides.
Is this a Saris issue, or a Zwift issue? I’ve had about enough of it either way.
