Re: PowerPod and ShockStop Stem by Redshift

Four comments: 1) The speed spikes are not a result of gear changes. Why? In each spike bike speed is reduced by 1 mph in one second, then goes back to "normal" in the next one second. These would be HUGE accelerations, not possible. What kind of speed sensor are you using? Where is it mou...

Re: PowerPod and ShockStop Stem by Redshift

Lots of comments: 1) I looked at the slope correction data for your rides. This data shows the effect of mount rigidity. There is some difference between fork and bar mount rigidity. The fork is more rigid, but at only one point in the bar ride (around 50km) is there a significant shift in calibrati...

Re: PowerPod and ShockStop Stem by Redshift

It's a cheap wireless magnetless speed sensor (accelerometer type) made by CycPlus (China). I have it mounted on the rear hub because I've got a generator hub on the front and the sensor band is too short to go around the hub. I think I might have had interference from the hub as well so I moved it...

Re: Newton +6 pairing Garmin Varia

Good news: you have the CdA key installed, so as long as you do not have a DFPM paired to your Newton, your Newton will transmit its power information to your Varia.

Make sure your Newton is awake and paired to your ANT+ sensors, then pair your Newton to your Varia.

Re: PPv3 reset?

Your 12/18 ride file looks OK, but the new calibration is a bit low. In fact, I applied your prior calibration factor and got great results.

Corrected ride file is attached, along with your prior profile, which I suggest you load into your unit.

Your earlier ride files look normal.

If your trainer can export a gpx file, then the gpx file can be merged into Isaac with this command. But, I don't know what info your gpx file has, and if that data will be read by Isaac.
