Hello all! I’m not sure if this is a software or hardware issue. 2021-model-year Wahoo Kickr
Using a PC that does not have a bluetooth connection (not one I’ve ever seen - I built the PC desktop back in 2013 with some upgrades here and there since). I am using a CooSpo USB ANT+ Dongle with 6ft. Extension Cable.
I did a ramp test where it asked me to hold a heart rate for about 20 minutes, and I don’t think I’ve ever been that smooth with RPM for that long before - I did the absolute best I could do, holding 91 or 89 RPM even for amazing amounts of time, as needed, to go up or down with heart rate by two or three BPM to stay within range. Yet look at this power data. I saw it while riding jumping from the 140’s to over 200’s constantly, no matter how smoothly I pedaled.
I’ll buy whatever I can to get the system to smooth out. I know I am also experiencing the delays in it holding to power for up to 5 seconds after a segment is supposed to drop off, and that sounds like it’s the ANT.
If I don’t have Bluetooth on my desktop, can I add it somehow? Is there a direct-wired connection to the trainer that would be better?
