I got a Tacx Smartflow trainer a few months back and quickly realized something was up. My indoor TR FTP was nearly double my outdoor FTP. I have Assioma Uno pedals that I pair with a Lenzyne Mini GPS when I’m outdoors, and I use Erg mode with my Tacx and TR indoors.
Things got crazy when I would train and try and hit Z3 level power (170w) but putting out Z7 level heart rate (187bpm)…
Just today, I tried to use Tacx + TR with my Assiomas paired with my Lezyne computer instead of TR. Throughout each interval, I was logging on my Lenzyne computer almost exactly HALF of what TR was telling me. I would do 6 minutes of a VO2 max threshold of with an average 222w (according to TR), with my Lenzyne reading an average of 115w. (Saying that, my heartrate was around 165bpm).
Is there something I have to switch on my bike computer? Is it because my Assiomas are only putting out one-sided power readings? Do I change the setting on the computer or my pedal? Any help is appreciated!
