Tacx i-Vortex

Postby Markwb79 » Sat Jan 19, 2013 18:30 pm


I have had my new turbo for a few weeks now.

When I have set up a training on the watts-time page. I have set it to 260watts for 20mins. I found it really hard to get my cadence higher than 80rpm.

I tried it on free cycling mode this evening, could manage 350watts at 100rpm without my heart rate going through the roof.

is it just a calibration issue? I tried to set it before the ride, cycle over 30km and then stop.

The speed on the tacx matches the speed of my garmin. Just seems to be the power that seems odd?

Any help would be great thanks.
