I bought a second hand 2014 Kickr from a friend yesterday (he’s very trustworthy so I don’t believe the trainer is broken) and I’m not convinced that ERG mode is working but I’m a smart trainer newb so i might be wrong. I think it might not be working because when I did a ramp test yesterday the only way I was able to increase the power seemed to be by spinning faster and changing up gears. I ended up on my big ring (46) and 11 tooth sprocket with a cadence of 100 and was making about 270w. If i reduced cadence the power dropped off. Is there a way of telling whether or not ERG mode is working or not?
I have checked the firmware version and it’s up to date and I have ERG mode set in the TrainerRoad app on my laptop. I don’t have a power meter on my bike and I had I have Power Match set to Auto. I read that the device shouldn’t be paired with any other apps so perhaps I should remove it from the Wahoo app on my phone but this seems odd because the TrainerRoad app is connecting to the Kickr and sensing speed and power from it. Any suggestions?
