Re: Big power differences between Favero Assioma and Newton

Is it possible that because the new bike is more aero, from the frame to the Zipp wheels that it is not calibrating correctly? I also entered that I have 700x28mm tires and maybe it believes those have a higher rolling resistance, even though they don't when paired with the Zipp wheels. If the Newto...

Big power differences between Favero Assioma and Newton

I just bought a new bike, moved my old Newton to the new bike and recalibrated. The power numbers from the new bike are consistent to my previous bike for 5 years. Everything seems ok. Then two days ago I installed Favero pedals with the idea of eventually adding an Aeropod with the pedals. However,...

How do I create another account? Isn't my account connected to my email? Not surprisingly, if I try and reregister from Issac it tells me that my account already exists. I don't want to use my work email for my play activities. How about if someone deletes my current account from the server and then...

Re: Newton Tracker Won't Upload Files

I don't have any GPS data on Tracker that I care about so that's ok. However, I have deleted the app multiple times and it doesn't seem to make any difference. The first time I start Tracker after reinstalling it looks normal. It gives me the ability to click on Start without Syncing data message. H...

Android Samsung S6. This morning I clicked on the Tracker App and it went immendiately into the Ride Data Sync followed by failure dance. It is now several hours later and it still says Ride Data Sync.

Re: Calibration is off for first 5-10 minutes

I don't think anything like that has happened. Looking back at the last week, the bike was either being ridden or has gone a very short distance from the front door to where it hangs in the basement. It seems that for some unknown reason it has decided to recalibrate itself such that it is off for t...

Re: Calibration is off for first 5-10 minutes

Reading your comment about tilt calibration off, Is there something in the firmware that could cause it to reset/recalibrate itself at what might be an inopportune time, for example on initial power up? I am 100% certain that both the mount and my handlebars haven't budged one bit. However, is there...

Re: Calibration is off for first 5-10 minutes

It's using the K-edge mount. It is rock solid, hasn't moved. I have seen the same exact issue a few times over the past year using the original Newton mount, but that was also rock solid and hasn't moved.

Calibration is off for first 5-10 minutes

Every few months I see that the data for the first 5-10 minutes is off. I appear to have developed extraordinary strength and my power numbers are way up. Then by the later part of the ride they get back closer to normal. I have not recalibrated or changed anything from the previous rides. I just tu...

How do I reprocess a ride using a different rider weight?

I'd like to reprocess a ride with a different bike and rider weight. I tried: 1) extracting the profile from the iBike and then increasing the rider weight and bike weight . 2) Saved profile 3) Used Tools switch profile after ride. However it ends up showing a lower total power when it should be the...

I had success a while ago with Tracker, however, I have not had any success for the past weeks. I start Tracker, finish the ride. Often I see a message that upload failed.

Racefern, Your analysis is interesting, but not sure how to interpret it yet. In my case I uploaded both the CSV and Fit file to Training peaks. The CSV file was generated by Newton. The FIT file was generated by Garmin. Training Peaks came up with the 2 sets of results. Using CSV it came up with 40...

Re: Differing power numbers when uploaded to Garmin Connect

Here are the files. For some reason the bulletin board won't let me upload the FIT file with the FIT extension so I renamed it. I tried different extensions but they didn't work. It has an ibr extension even though it is a FIT file.

Why is power different between Newton and Garmin 810

I just purchased a Garmin 810 and have set it up to receive power readings from my Newton. For some reason the ride summaries relative to power are substantially different.

That's interesting. What you described is not in the documentation for the Newton.
