Hello everyone hope you are all doing well
I just wonder what your experience is regarding the Zero Offset Calibration from The Assioma pedals. I read you shall do this before every ride is this really such a big thing? Or will it be good enough to do this once a week or when you reinstall them?
How much have you been of if you forget to calibrate them?
Reason for asking is …
Last 2-3 weeks I did a lot of outdoor riding, while I did some intensive rides well they did feel hard to me the numbers were not impressive compare to my Indoor sessions I think there I did the Trainers Powermeter.
So yesterday I did a Zero Offset and then I actually remembered that I once did take the pedals off to install one of the Washers that came with them, and not sure most likely did not calibrate them.
The ride I did yesterday was about 1h Avg Watt 203W and NP 253W IF 0.97 My TR FTP is 262W but I did think it was more like around 250 best case.
I am new to outdoor riding with a Powermeter so first, I did think the numbers are lower because it is just different to ride outdoors. Since I need to stop sometimes watch the street also there is coasting that I guess will pull the avg down.
Anyway now I am skeptical if this is too good to be true. Is there anything else I need to know about calibration? Does this make such a big difference?
The Crank length I also did check 172.5 on the Wahoo and on the Favero App and written on my Crank.
Below a picture from the ride does this make sense? A lot of Headwinds yesterday.
Thanks for sharing your opinion
