ERG Mode spikes

Thanks for the help everybody, I will try a few things on my workout tomorrow. I have adjusted my power smoothing to 6 seconds and if that doesn’t help I will try the little ring on the front.

Will I still be able to hit the high Watts using the little ring? I have used the little ring before in workouts but seemed to hit a wattage ceiling around 250 Watts (with my old wheel on trainer).

i completed the workout today and the trainer seems way more consistent, the only thing i changed was power smoothing to 6 seconds.

I also dropped my FTP by 10 watts after struggling to keep up with the fluctuations of the last ride so maybe that has helped aswell.
