I have a Favero Assioma Uno power meter. Recently I attempted to transfer the pedals from my primary bike, which doesn’t fit on my budget Travel Trac fluid trainer (wide thru axles), to my less than ideal indoor hybrid bike. Was previously using virtual power, but there’s no reason to use virtual power anymore. Made sure to calibrate the Faveros once connected to TR.
My problem is with power drifting lower holding cadence constant. After about a minute and 30s into the interval, I have to increase my cadence by 1 or 2 rpms. As more time passes in the interval, it continues to drift lower. So where at the start I might measure 210 watts at 90 rpm, later that same 210 watts will require 96 rpm and so on. I’ve failed Carpathian Peak twice as a result of this…legs toasted.
I ran the data on my Garmin head unit and the power/cadence were identical and the same power drifting phenomenon occurred. I’ve never had this problem outdoors. Do you think this is a problem with the Faveros? Could it be the trainer? Is there a solution? Don’t have the budget for a new trainer right now.
