Re: Did high humidity temporarily kill my PP?

I have the Trek DuoTrap. This morning's ride (with the PP freshly charged) was fine. It did occur to me that the speed sensor might be the issue, and I will see if changing out that battery makes a difference.

Re: Did high humidity temporarily kill my PP?

So, it happened again. I went out for a 2.5 hour ride, and only had power for the first 11 minutes. It showed 0W on my Garmin for the rest of the ride. This time I did not do anything to the PP, in case my faffing with it last time caused the recording to stop somehow. As was the case last time, I h...

Re: Did high humidity temporarily kill my PP?

Hmm. I guess for the future I will not be surprised if something misbehaves under these quite extreme conditions, but I'm skeptical it was the Garmin as everything else was fine. I just did a test run on my bike and power is once again displaying appropriately. All's well that ends well.

Did high humidity temporarily kill my PP?

Hello, we're having a particularly hot and humid spell, so this morning I started out on my ride at 6 am when the air temperature was a bit cooler, but the humidity was 100%. After about 25 minutes, my Garmin started displaying 0W (not "--" which I guess means it was still alive?), which persisted f...

Re: Gravel bike power readings too high

I did 83 km with my gravel bike today, the vast majority on a basically straight and flat gravel rail trail. We had a strong headwind going out and corresponding tailwind on the way back. The pod gave an extremely high reading right at the beginning of the ride, while I was still in my driveway, so ...

Re: Gravel bike power readings too high

Thank you. I'll give this a try. I assume that having now sent this profile to my pod, it will automatically detect when I am riding my gravel bike and use the correct profile?

Gravel bike power readings too high

Hi, I've been riding with my PowerPod V3 on my road bike and I think the power readings are quite accurate. They are very much in line with 2 different trainers that I ride. Recently, I added a second profile for my gravel bike, did a calibration then rode a 52 km out and bike ride solo, and the pow...
