I am really struggling to work out how to use the ERG mode and feel like I must be doing something fundamentally wrong. Can anyone advise me on what i’m doing incorrectly?
Nothing I do will allow me to hit the required power and Zwift just tells me “More Power”. But I figured the point or ERG was for it to force me into correct power?
Eg Zwift will exit the warmup stage of a workout and tell to me hold say 220W .
-If I maintain my current cadence the resistance stays the same and thus I am below the required power
-If I increase the cadence then I might be able to hit the lower powers but require silly cadences well into the 100s
-If I try to shift up a gear then resistance seemingly decreases as I wont get a power increase for the same cadence. So just end up in my hardest gear but not putting out any extra power.
I am using a Elite Zumo with up to date firmware connected, via mobile phone Bluetooth, to a windows 10 machine. Thanks in advance for your time!
