So let me whine here a minute please. While I love the idea of the ramp test, my current setup has me continuing to HATE it!
Finished SSB1 and time to start SSB2. Decided to try the ramp test again. I am on my faithful KK dumb trainer. Put the good cassette (fewer jumps between cogs) on.
As things get harder, I am going from a cadence of 105/110 to 88. then I try to ramp the cadence back up to maintain power. Burns out the legs waaay too early. I can tell there is more there, but not standing to help boost kills me.
I have worked on a slower cadence (about 90-93) as it better corresponds with the MTB racing. But this wide range, held for relatively longer times, just destroys what my legs can do.
I know this has been discussed before – but dang I needed to vent.
and no, buying a smart trainer is not a $$$ option.
Back to the regularly scheduled day now…
