When calibrating my Stages (L side crank) power meter, I’ve never seen the offset number say anything other than zero. How do I know that it’s working?
I’ve also had a history of trouble connecting the PM to TR, often have to restart my computer to get them to talk at all. (Sidebar, TR desktop app also reads the power meter battery to be at 42% no matter what)
I’m suspicious that there’s an issue because I see WILD differences between my indoor (cal. to TR desktop app) and outdoor (cal. to my Garmin 735xt watch) workouts. For example, I ramp tested to an FTP of 222w indoors, but can hold average an wattage of 220+ for 2 hour workouts outdoors, repeat 8min intervals at 275w, etc.
It doesn’t seem to match up.
Help! I want to know I’m getting the most out of my indoor work!
