Should I unpair my trainer road app from the KK Road Machine now that I have a stages power meter? Or do I just turn off ‘virtual power’?
Been running a KK Road Machine with the virtual power up until now. I’m assuming I should unpair it and just run real power off of the crank arm. The crank arm should provide cadence too.
Let me know what you think.

I got it sorted. Just turned off virtual power and that was that.

Out of curiosity, how does virtual power on the KKRM compare to real power from your Stages PM?

You also got the option to Reset Career under the Account page.

Might be interesting if your Stages tracks significantly lower watts than virtual did. TR has provided a short description next to the reset button, I don’t know if this applies to you.

Congrats on the Stages. Love mine and the fact I can have one single truth inside and out on the trails.

I did maybe 30 seconds of pedaling on the devices page where I could watch power from both units. The Stages was showing more watts, which I was surprised to see. The cadence from Stages seemed a lot higher as well. No idea how KK was tracking cadence.

I’ll chrck it out. Thanks Hans

Thanks. Enjoy the Stages. Someday I’ll upgrade to a PM.
