I have another update I reset everything and restarted each device to get a good baseline.
I took the stages power meter off for the entire warm up. Wile the graph was perfect smooth using the power smoothing of the kickr I could feel the same tightening and easing up I felt yesterday. The wattage was definitely held above what was called for and then it would go way below what was called for. It was just like yesterday’s roller coaster that was using the power meter. It was really odd to see that the power numbers on the screen never changes when the effort was dramatically increasing and or decreasing.
The way I understand this process is that is trainer road software commanding the power levels or the kickr. If that is correct it seems the problem is with TR not with the kickr. Does that sound logical?
