I would love doing this but found it too annoying that Garmin won’t allow you to disable erg mode. If that’s fixed that’s all I need. I know you can unpair your smart trainer and repair it as a power meter but then you don’t get virtual distance which I find handy to track chain waxing intervals.
If the aim was to distract and stop people thinking about WLV2, the first step might be to have Jonathan stop mentioning it on the podcast (once each in 416 & 417 to name the most recent two weeks). Point being that I doubt these topics are aimed at anything other than the item at hand.
Like a duck on the water, I see this as TR being potentially quite active behind the scenes despite minimal stuff shown now. TR is large enough in size that they likely are developing multiple things in different teams, so these topics by Nate are likely aimed at those other teams besides those on WLV2. Sure, this is sadly delayed and years behind when any of us would like to see (TR included). We will get it when we get it, and other stuff may show before then without having a direct impact or delay since they are likely covering several things at once.
He mentions it again in today’s show. No spoilers, but he had a pretty big difference between his avg. power and a bonkers threshold PL during the event he did over the weekend. I continue to be excited about the update. I also continue to be a tad annoyed that we’ve been waiting so long. Mostly excited, though.
