Newton +6 : help with Avg Watts

Post by Ridley »

I live in Italy, last month I bought a Newton +6 and I think to have a problem with the watts.
After I did the Cal ride, the FTP test and a short ride of 41 km I checked the watts :
Cal ride = 5,8 km 32,9 km/h 259W
FTP test = 13,2 km 39,2 km/h 340W
Short ride = 40,6 km 35,2 km/h 318W
Undoubtedly too high values on watts.
I post all the .ibr ride files and I hope someone will take a look

1) You have a PowerPod, not a Newton (I can tell by the serial number)

2) Your profile setting is incorrect; your rolling resistance is way too high, causing your problems

3) Load the attached profile into your PP and all will be well

4) Corrected files are attached.

5) Your powerstroke shows a LOT of side-to-side sway. You are a very strong cyclist, but you might want to focus some on improving your sway

Thank you for your prompt replay,
1) I swear I have a Newton +6 not a PowerPod
2) I noticed that my rolling resistance was way too high and now you have confirmed it.
3) Which is the name of the attached profile to load in my Newton? Is this profile suitable for my Newton? How can I load the attached profile on my Newton?
4) Ok
5) About my sway you are right because I have an injury to anterior cruciate ligament of my right knee. I have to work a lot on this!

PS: I see that you didn't download the Cal ride, did you have some problems?

1) My mistake! I read the serial number improperly; you do have a Newton... :-)

2) Profile ends in .ibp. Place .ibp profile on your desktop. Attach Newton to Isaac. Go to "Edit/Edit Profiles". Click the "Import" button. Then click "Send to Device"

3) I don't need to download the cal ride, because your subsequent rides have the cal ride profile embedded in them

4) You sure are a strong cyclist, even after your injury!!!
