Sounds good, glad to hear you will be getting one soon!

The RC is now in the main PeriPedal update path, so just update when prompted and the features will be installed.

Hi Adam,

I'am impressed: you kept your promise! Thanks a lot.
My Powerbeam is controlled by PeriPedal :D.
I did just a short test due to time constraints.

Best regards

Peripedal is controlling my Powerbeam as well. Very nice.

FWIW, I also had a similar PBPro unit as Burnt Toast with the old firmware. Sent it back in OCT. It took about a week to return and was then broadcasting power. Even better now that Peripedal can control it.

Finally got my PowerBeam back from Saris and gave it a go tonight. The ERG mode was working very well but I can see that I will need to do a FTP test with this trainer as it definitely feels different then my Fluid2. I just didn't feel like doing one so I created a new user with a guestimate FTP.

I see there is a "calibrate" button when you start a workout but its not functioning. Can I assume that will be included in the next release?

ATucker - I sent mine in on Oct 13th, they received it on the 15th and I just got a new replacement today. I'm not sure what the problem was but they said there was some "issues"

Joined the Peripedal Strava group. The only bad thing about ERG is that speed is now irrelevant. We may need to agree on a common gearing to keep things equal.

Great to hear this is working well for everyone.

Calibration will be added at some point in the future. No promises on the next release, but sometime fairly soon. The calibration requires more UI feedback than the KICKR does, so I am deciding how I want to implement that.

Great on the PeriPedal group! Unfortunately the speed values are going to be all over the place due to not only different gearing in ERG mode, but different trainers, etc. At some point I would like to start a leaderboard right inside PeriPedal based off of Training Load or something that is more generically comparable.

Any developments on the calibration feature for the PowerBeam Pro?

Nothing new. I would still like to add it at sometime, but there are so many other cool features I want to work on first.

I haven't seen much activity here in quite a while but I thought I'd see if there are any developments on a calibration feature for the PowerBeam Pro.

No news on calibration. Honestly I will probably wait until everyone moves to the new ANT+ trainer controller standard and implement that.
