I just bought a second hand Kickr to replace my old Elite Drivo that failed on me with a broken shaft last week.
I installed my road bike on it and started a session with the Trainer Road app, on the small gear on the front and three cogs down from the largest cog of the cassete(so a pretty light gear), and ERG mode. Same way I used to do my sessions at the Elite Drivo with no problems.
After a warmup at around 150W, the app ramped it up to 250W, but them, after a few minutes, the trainer resistance dropped to zero. After a few minutes trying to reset the trainer and the app I still couldn’t have any resistance while the app was still trying to get it to 250W with no response from the trainer.
Them I tried the harder gear my bike have, and it worked, and I could finish my session this way, hitting my power marks. But dropping the cadence to pedal out of the saddle was still a problem, as the trainer could not raise the resistance enough and it dropped again to almost zero, untill I rev the pedals up again.
I also tried slope mode at the Trainer Road app, and it worked fine untill I got to 50% resistance, after that the trainer dropped again to zero resistance untill I got back to a lower setting.
Anyone here ever had similar issues with a Kickr?
Thanks a lot. Daniel
