Apologies up front. I suspect this has been asked before but despite tons of searching here and elsewhere I can not find an answer so I am hoping someone here can help.
On the seven day trail at the moment and overall having a tremendous amount of fun. Today while in Zwift 101: Cycling I was to perform a ramp test. All going well until I realized my Watts top out at 280. Top gear and RPMs at 120 and no dice. Still 280 and my gearset has reached its limit. Cant go any faster.
-Blackburn Tech Mag Race (on setting 3 as prompted by Zwift)
My thought was that since I have three more settings on the trainer to increase resistance that I should be able to go up one level and therefore increase power. However since my trainer is of the quite old and dumb variety Zwift has no way of knowing that. For the life of me I cant figure out if it is even possible to relay that information to Zwift. Am I forever limited to 280w max? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
