Hey everyone. I’m extremely new to smart trainers and Zwift so I’m stumbling through things a little.
I am currently using a Tacx Neo 2 trainer in an upstairs apartment. Initially I liked the idea of using the “road feel” option until I realized how much vibration that seems to create and I really want to keep chances of annoying my downstairs neighbor to a minimum (even though I’ve informed them I have a trainer).
As a result, I would prefer to disable the “road feel” option and have been able to do that. However, today I noticed that no matter what gradient I rode the intensity felt almost the same. It seems I discovered ERG mode. The strange thing is, I’m sure the previous couple rides required shifting gears on gradients, but road feel was disabled. I don’t recall changing any options.
In the end, I would like to keep road feel disabled and also keep the ability to do my own shifting during generic rides/routes. I understand the purpose of ERG mode for workouts, but I’m not doing those at this time.
Is it possible to do what I want or do I only have two options:
- Tacx road feel disabled, ERG mode automatically enabled with no way to disable
- Tacx road feel enabled, ERG mode automatically disabled due to road feel option
Thanks for any input.
