I’ve been scratching my head using my Stages. Power seemed way low. Up until now I only had a Tacx Vortex trainer to use as a power meter. I can accept that the Tacx isn’t the most accurate power meter. Riding side by side with a friend who has a Stages we were calling out power numbers. I was consistently 20-30 watts below him.
I contacted Stages and they suggested a full factory reset which means taking the battery out and then shorting the terminals inside the unit for 20 seconds. I had previously taken the battery out but that wasn’t enough. Before I did this I wanted to do some testings.
First test in next post:
