You guys obviously have A LOT more experience than I do…thanks for the valued input. It makes sense as I read it.
I use a Stages Left Side only arm, and our (South African) roads do have some rough bits so its possible that those spike may be as I transfer power and knock a rough patch in the road?
Lots of comments I agree with:
- My testing protocol needs improvement. Will also run the ramp test via a windows (GRRRRR) machine and see if it makes a difference. Also need to work harder at my effort. Outdoor and in spin class I manage 170-180 bpm.
- I will try and get power comparison with someone we ride with…but you all know the “secrecy” of power figures in a semi-competitive group.
- I have only had the PM for a little over two weeks and need to do more repeat rides to compare data between.
Again, thank you for everyone’s input and time taken. I appreciate it.
