I’m having some issues with TrainerRoad not reading the simulated speed from my Kickr. For those that doesn’t know, the Kickr can simulate speed based off of power while in ERG mode. Which makes it possible to ride in a very low gear (a lot less noise) and still get a somewhat realistic speed reading. I know speed and distance is very much irrelevant, but that’s what everyone else measures and I also have a stupid distance goal for 2019 that I’d like to be able to hit.
Anyways, on Tuesday I did a ride where it worked like a charm, which was also the day I did some testing to see how much different the Kickr and my PM measures, so I started the ride only pairing TrainerRoad with the Kickr and only later added the pedals (5 % on a VO2max session was too much). But it still read the simulated speed right for the whole ride. You can see it here (TR) or here (Strava - has speed). On Saturday I did an other session where it never seemed to work, which you can see here (TR) or here (Strava - has speed).
After the Tuesday ride I’ve updated the firmware on the Kickr and TrainerRoad has had an update. Now it won’t read the simulated speed on TrainerRoad, but if I pair my Garmin it’ll read just fine.
I’m suspecting that running powermatch on TrainerRoad might influence it, but I’m not sure. When I use the Garmin I only paired it with the Kickr and then it reads fine.
Anyone that’s had the same issue and know of a fix?
I would like to keep using powermatch since the Kickr reads kinda far from my PM, and it’s not even consistent how much the offset is.
