Constant Dropping of Power

Postby kyleh » Tue Nov 18, 2014 4:23 pm

So I've been using PeriPedal with a Wahoo Kickr for about a month now and since day 1 I've had a problem with it constantly dropping power. Below is a screenshot of the workout I just finished and this is a pretty typical result. The laptop is running Windows 8, I always start off with calibrating (somewhere around 680) and it does this with multiple bikes so I know its not my crank based PM throwing the figures off. I have the laptop on a stool about 4 feet in front of the Kickr and maybe 2 feet off the floor and my wireless is on the least populated channel I could find (6).

Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

Hi Kyle,

You mentioned you were using multiple bikes. Do you always use the KICKR as your power source in the bike profile? If you use your crank based PM as the power source does the output look better?

Is your KICKR using the latest firmware?

Let me know about the above and we can continue to debug.
