I’ve been riding on Wattbike Atom for over a year and have been generally really happy with it. Over the last few weeks I have found the resistance when climbing or sprinting to be very frustrating.
While climbing up the Alpe I would expect to be in about gear 2 or 3 doing about 300 watts, thats certainly what I’m in on the Wattbike Hub. I find the resistance drops off and after a while I will end up all the way up at the top of the gear range.
In anticipation for a sprint i used to change up the gears and lower the cadence so when you are ready to sprint you are not having to change. Although the power shoots up to my max when I’m in top gear after several seconds the resistance reduces and I end up spinning out…
Has anyone else experienced this on an Atom lately?
I’ve tried a couple of climbs in the Wattbike Hub and it seems to behave as you’d expect.
