I’m due to ride Clark later today for the first time on my 2017 KICKR in ERG mode. Looking back I did this workout in Jan 2017 on my 2016 KICKR, but I can’t remember it distinctly and I want to optimise the session.
Reading the instructions in the ride description today it says before the High Force Stomps manually change to a bigger and later change back. I doubt I would have done that before, or I would have remembered, so that’s old text for using a trainer in Resistance Mode, yes?
I’m guessing that updated in-ride text will have said something like - “Smart Trainer ERG Mode users should slow down their cadence down to about 60RPM and then stomp” - Would that be about right?
Anyway, in tandem with this, I have recently switched to training in the Small Chainring to reduce flywheel assistance in Sweet Spot efforts, whilst reducing the lag in engagement after Form Sprints. So, should I stay in the lower ratio for Clark, or go back to the Big Ring for this type of session? I can see advantages/disadvantages for both.
