So I’m 270lbs or 122kg trying to get back on the bike used to do 50 mile per week outdoors and enjoyed it but life as it does got in the way , so now I have a Tacx set up with a speed and cadence sensor
After a bit of reading I have found out why everyone passes by at alarming rates it’s cos I’m fat lol and the algorithm is set to chubby but in the real world I can go up a hill at 6/7mph not 3 I’m not that bad.
So far I’ve stuck to the real game settings but to hit the ftp training is almost impossible I’m good for a bout 20 mins at that rate and I’m shot I don’t know how I can even complete 45 mins of that torture
However I dropped my weight to 160lbs and it was no problem keeping up and also nice to pass some people
So what do I do tag along at the back and go up hills at 3 mph or peddle the weight off enjoying myself and at least look like I’m competing
Thoughts please does anyone else think the algorithm is a little out
