New Trainer Road User. Due to a knee injury I’m starting with traditional base 1. I have a 2017 Kickr. I notice on the form sprints, when I accelerate from 93-95 rpm to 130-140 rpm, this winds up the flywheel that is outspins my cadence as I back off the sprint, leading the trainer to record 0 watts for a short period. I’m doing all of these seated due to my knee. Any way to make the trainer track more closely with my pedalling?
If you are in big chainring, try switching to little chainring.
I just accept a momentary drop in power, like when sprinting outside on the flats. I’m not a fan of the lower torque requirements in little chainring, particularly on aerobic endurance workouts that fill traditional base 1 (it feels like riding down a false flat to me).
