I have a question that has been touched on previously but I just wanted to clarify one point.
This can be a can of worms so I’m hoping it will get less action in this forum.
This pertains to wheel on set ups.
I know the speed and distance calculated in game will be different from the speed and distance that show up on a cycle computer because of hills, drafting etc.
But, if I ride out of the draft, on a flat road in Zwift, should the speed in game be the same as what my cycle computer shows?
I have accurately measured my wheels circumference.
The cycle computer reads 15 mph and my game speed is 20-22.
Both devices are using the same data from my speed sensor but arriving a two different answers.
Is this a valid test?
I do not want to start a thread of wheel on vs direct drive or smart trainer vs Z Power.
Just a question.
If anyone has ridden in a similar situation and noted agreement or disagreement between their 2 devices, that would be useful to know.
