I have been using Zwift for a year on a CycleOps Powerbeam Pro. I initially tested my FTP when I started and got around 240. I did the 12 week FTP builder and rode a lot in Zwift and got my FTP up to 314 (I thought).
I have ridden on the Hammer Direct Drive 3 times now and my wattage is substantially lower. Also, races, where I used to be competitive, are now disasters, with me placing lower than I ever did on the Powerbeam Pro.
So, my questions are - which trainer is correct? If it is indeed the Hammer, then what was wrong with the powerbeam? Are the recognized issues with either trainer in Zwift?
Basically, I am trying to find out if I am a pretty strong rider (on my old trainer) or a pretty poor rider, based on the new trainer.
Thanks in advance.
