First post here.
I have been enjoying Zwift for several weeks now and have the time of my life .
I am using a Tacx Flux 2 smart trainer and have experienced a few dropouts.
There is however another issue which bugs me : on long rides it happens frequently that the trainer seems to "dumb down " for lack of a better expression (my apologies English is not my first language): suddenly the trainer stops reacting to gradient changes through changes in the resistance I can feel in my legs, but, for a given gear, keeps roughly the same resistance but varies speed.
To make things clearer, let say I am on a 0% incline on a given gear, and I hit the start of a climb, if I stay in the same gear I will feel a change in resistance and if I want to maintain speed I will normally have to put out more watts, and possibly get out of the saddle.
This works for 45 to 55 minutes but then, for no apparent reason, if I am again on 0% incline on a given gear, and I hit the start of a climb, I will feel no change in resistance, will continue to put out roughly the same wattage, and will only see my speed drop. If I want to put out more watts I will have to select a larger gear.
Am I the only one experiencing this issue? I have browsed the net for quite some time now and have not found anything referring to this…
