I have recently renewed my TR account and am trying to get to grips with my new setup.
Previously I used TR over the UK winter when the weather was not conducive to med-week riding and weekends were often curtailed. In the UK I had the benefit of a garage with dedicated turbo trainer bike on which I mounted my Samsung Tablet with a sound system and a TV on the wall. Using the tablet gave me a very specific power target with the Green/Red at a glance indicator to show how close I was to target.
I am now in a different country/city where the traffic and weather are not conducive to anything other than a very early Saturday morning ride. I don’t have the luxury of a dedicated TT bike/garage/TV/sound system and, as I am not scheduled to be here beyond the end of this year, I am not keen to invest in additional kit such as a tablet and mount. I have invested in a TT which I hope to take home. So I am using my Elemnt as the only head unit for using TR.
Having used it for a week and getting used to the small screen I am wondering why the target power is given as a range which is sometimes quite wide (0-100, 90-120 etc)? I am also wondering where I should pitching my measured power within that range?
It’s not difficult to hit the middle of the power range with a reasonably comfortable cadence and resistance.
Should I be pushing harder to try and get to the upper range of the target power band?
Am I overthinking this?
