I’ve run TR for several years, and been through a lot of equipment. This morning I rode my Elite Drivo, paired with a Quarq DZero and ‘PowerMatch’ in the “Auto” setting. I did the Ericsson workout. Everything is ANT+ connected to TR on a Mac. Ericcson is just a simple SSB thing, really with some ILT and cadence drills.
Ericsson is supposed to be Sweet Spot work, which I expect will cross a bit into Threshold too. But when you look at my data from the ride this morning, I was nearly 16% in Threshold, and 6% into VO2 territory. The Drivo has never produced those artificially smooth graphs like a KICKR, and certainly my legs (via the Quarq) are nowhere a smooth as a KICKR graph… but WTF… should it be this lumpy?
When I run the same configuration (Powermatch + Quarq) on my Elite Real e-motion B+ (ERG) rollers, the graph is way smoother.
My fellow Drivo riders, what are your experiences?
