Trainer resistance still changing in Free ride

Hi all,

I’ve set up varying length workouts with ‘free ride’ for the entire session (basically for when I wanted to do my own cadence / speed based sessions). The problem is that my trainer still changes resistance for any gradient changes. It was my assumption that this wouldn’t happen? Or am I wrong?

I’m using a MacBook with a Bkool Smart Pro 2 connected via Ant+.

For a free ride workout it should not change resistance.

See this similar post, some good info in the end.
