Requesting help from someone who is familiar with speed/cadence sensor troubleshooting…
I recently purchased the small bike adapter for my Kurt Kinetic Road machine so that my son can use Zwift as well. I set up a free Child’s account for him and installed the adapter, but now i have two problems:
1. Signal dropping when child uses
I’ve set everything up correctly and installed the Garmin cadence and speed sensor on his bike. However when he pedals it seems as though Zwift is only getting his signal intermittently. He goes from 0 watts to 30 watts to 50 watts when back down to 5 watts, then 15 watts then 5 watts, etc. I had no signal issues with my bike previously and i’m wondering what’s happened.
2. My bike watts have greatly reduced
When i put the sensors back on my bike and try to use Zwift, i can generate constant power, unlike my son, but my power has been drastically reduced. ie. I can normally hold 200 watts pretty easily but now i can’t seem to hold much past 80watts.
