Fair, the Vortex is a low-end trainer but bike upgrades come before trainer upgrades. I am (or should be) less concerned about the actual power numbers but I like being shallow and the bragging rights of a high FTP. My bigger concern is the results of ramp tests (3 tests and 2 SSB blocks) all basically the same 201, 201, 204. It seems curious and I have a feeling that the STAC and the lack of flywheel other than wheel weights really impacts the erg “death spiral” and even small drops in cadence results in large increases in resistance.
I will have to wait until a PM comes into the picture to see what exactly is going on.
