Started out on Trainerroad a couple of months ago having had no previous formal training plans on the bike. Enjoying the structure and intensity (so far)… Did the sprint triathlon base LV and am now half way through SSB1 LV.
Couple of quick questions. I have an old cycleops magneto with a wahoo speed sensor set up with virtual power on my Galaxy S8.
The Speed sensor seems to pop up randomly as one of (or sometimes both of) 2 devices:
- Wahoo Speed 58FE - Speed/Cadence sensor
- Wahoo Speed - Speed sensor ID #22782
If I can get it to pair with the second it’s far more responsive and updates power almost instantly but more often than not I can only get it to pair with the first which is extremely sluggish and can take 5-10s to ramp up to a change in intensity.
I don’t have any other sensors right now and the phone is enabled for ant+ and bluetooth - Anybody have any idea what’s going on? It’s not a massive issue at the moment but will get annoying when the training turns more to VO2 I think.
Second question - I can’t help but be curious - Anyone made the jump from a magneto on Virtual power to a Power Meter / Smart trainer and know how accurate the power curve is? I know it’s just a number… Doesn’t stop me wondering
Any input appreciated. Cheers
