For the app to read speed and distance from my trainer

It would be great if the app read speed and km from the trainer so my workouts count towards my weekly km goal

  1. Hi Gilesy, so it seems it would be better for us to calculate speed/distance based on power. Since trainers don’t consistently report this. We could allow people to select a profile, like ultra light, aero position which would give you the high end. MTB and overweight could be the other end. Does that make sense? I agree with your basic request. This should be easy using my approach.

  2. I think that’s the way to go. If your profile has your weight, it could be used to determine your virtual speed based on your current power (and maybe type of bike road/mtb).

  3. Now that I think about it, I think you are right. Actually just asking for weight including bike is the only question. We will assume a 1% grade for the whole thing just so it is a bit more realistic to outdoors. We will also assume riding on hoods on road bike should be good enough to get people in the ballpark or real-life. I am sure most MTB riders are happy to get a bit more than realistic distance 🙂
