So I tried my first FTP test today (I chose Short FTP Test) and it was supremely annoying to the point where I just stopped and went on a free ride.
When I went to start my FTP was set at 240. As that seemed high, I lowered it and started in ERG mode.
First it wanted me to hold 50w at 90 strokes a minute - literally impossible. Then by the time I got up to speed and needed to produce real watts, I was on my last gear (smallest cog) and just spinning out.
Did I mess up by lowering the FTP?
I did a spin down calibration right before taking the test.
Maybe I should try a ramp test instead?
Thanks in advance
