I recently purchased a 2nd hand CycleOps 300. Ever since I’ve been trying everything that this forum (and elsewhere) recommends to connect to the CycleOps 300 – including the Legacy App on my Macbook. All to no avail.
At this point I think the easiest solution is to stick a speed/cadence sensor on to the CycleOps and then use TrainerRoad’s virtual power. I’m OK with not having accurate power as long as the training plan is relative to whatever FTP I get from a Ramp test.
However, I’d prefer that the power number be as accurate as it can be. Finally, my question: is there an existing manufacturer/model in the TrainerRoad app that would come closest to the dynamics of CycleOps 300 for virtual power. Yes, I recognize that I’m blissfully (almost wilfully) ignorant of all the factors that go into virtual power, but I’m just looking for a gross approximation.
Thanks for any guidance you might have.
