I’m wondering when you all calibrate your wheel on trainer?
About 6 months ago I bought a very basic smart trainer (Tacx flow smart). On dcrainmaker’s review I read he does suggest calibrating before starting a workout for better results. But Tacx says to do it after a 10 min warm up. My trainer is in an unheated part of the house, nice during summer, and now during winter it won’t drop below 7°C (45°F). After my last Full Frontal (my first during the colder weather) I did see some big improvements. Which got me wondering whether this could be due to calibration beforehand making the trainer overestimate power? For example if I calibrate after a workout I have to tighten the knob about 4 turns, so a lot more pressure on the wheel. For the moment I’m on the TOS prep plan(novice) so no real heavy workouts.So far only butter has been really hard but then again it could be just because I’m on new numbers.
So since there is quiet a big difference between a pre and post workout calibration, when would you suggest to calibrate.
