I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue. When doing a workout in ERG mode, I find it much more difficult to maintain a given wattage and cadence in a lower gear than a higher one.
So for example, if I’m doing 85 rpm in a 34/19 my heart rate is 15 bpm higher than if I’m doing 85 rpm in the 52/19. I thought the whole point of ERG mode was to adjust resistance so that your gear combo was irrelevant.
Just to be clear, my cadence is the same. So is the target wattage. The only difference is whether I’m in the big ring or not.
