I am using the Saris H3 smart trainer. My bike has a 1 x 12 drivetrain.
Yesterday doing “The wringer” (I failed miserably ) I coasted for a few seconds in the 10 min build-up/warm up to adjust the iPad displaying Zwift and the resistance went to zero. I was essentially left spinning between 0 and 50 watts until the 10 min was over, in which erg kicked in for the first interval. This happened again mid workout during a recovery segment at 130w. Once the next interval hits… it’s fine. This has happened in previous workouts as well.
Free rides have no resistance on my trainer. Like the issues above I can spin as fast as possible but get no watts. I can shift to the 12 gear and spin as hard as I can with no resistance and maybe hit 100w.
I am new to Zwift and the world if indoor cycling so very likely could be the way I have it set up. Is this a default in Zwift I need to adjust? On the H3 trainer?
