Hi, first post… I searched for a similar topic with no luck:
I’m doing “Build Me Up” training plan. During warmup I can match cadence and power without issue, but when the routine wants higher watts I simply cannot match the power with the cadence suggested. For example it wanted 215 watts at 110 RPM and I was cranking 115 RPM but making 145 watt. It’s like my feet are windmilling around!
I’m in control of cadence, but I cannot make more power without more resistance, and that’s the job of Zwift talking to my trainer. What can I do to fix this?
I tried a ‘free ride’ on a hilly route and confirmed that the trainer responded to incline as expected. I attacked some hills so I could get up on the pedals to make power and reliably got 400+ watt resistance as I would have expected.
setup: Wahoo Kicker Core, Zwift on PC with Ant+, cadence sensor, TT bike with 56/11 gearing.
