Could you swap the “M” and the “space bar” functions on the PC version?
I find that I really do not need to pause as it will auto pause if I stop but I do need to stand and stretch every 10-15 minutes and use the “M” resistance function to do this. I have accidentally hit the “Space Bar” while hitting the “M” multiple times and then the confusion as to what is happening sets in. Is it a drop? Did my electricity just go out? No, its just the silliness of trying to hit a small key while reaching and pedaling when there is a five times larger key possibly available ?
Thanks for taking the time to share your suggestion @SG123!
The reason we have the spacebar set as to play/pause the workout is that not everyone has the Pedal to Play/Pause feature enabled. For those that prefer to manually start and stop their workout, it makes more sense to have the pause button larger since it is a function that will be used every ride, whereas not every user will be changing the resistance mode every ride.
I’d like place a vote against swapping the functions of these buttons. The space bar is used as a play/pause button in many, many applications. Deviating from this unofficial standard would violate the “principle of least surprise” and be a mistake in my opinion.
