I wonder if other people have noticed their Stages not compensating adequately for temperature.
Today, my bike was stored inside (75F). I took it outside and let it sit for maybe 5 minutes. I came out, calibrated my Stages (gen 2) with my Garmin head unit and then left on my ride. It was 93F outside with 80% humidity.
I think the initial calibration was 890.
Towards the middle of my ride, I noticed that my power seemed abnormally low. I stopped and recalibrated it (914) and then power looked normal for the rest of the ride.
I guess my stages can’t compensate for a 20 degree swing in temperature? Maybe the humidity?
I’m just wondering if others have noticed these kinds of things. Or, if this is normal. I guess the moral is that if I’m doing any serious power based workouts that I should calibrated after I warm up.
