I just performed a Ramp test, and as I was getting into the higher wattage outputs (about 350 watts), then go to the next minute of needed higher power, my cadence increases, but my wattage actually goes lower.
I know I can play with the pressure of the trainer, and the tire pressure, or maybe even take the heavy flywheel off during a ramp test. Before I do all of that, I figure that there must be someone else out there who has already gone through this and could help.
Here’s my current setup:
Gatorskin tire 700x23 always pumped to 100 psi
Kurt Kinetic trainer with the optional heavy flywheel attached
Calibrated prior to ramp test
