cPritch67 said:Pleased to report that after the first ride with the 2.4, just under 3 hours. I experienced no dropouts for power, heart rate or cadence (using optional wireless sensor).
I took delivery after Saris implemented "improved QC testing protocols".
I know one ride doesn't speak volumes in terms of long term reliability, but I am very pleased so far.
Perhaps I jinxed myself. Ride number 2 wasn't as successful. As a FYI, the ride was a consistent 3-5% grade, until minute 40, when i turned around - notice speed line on chart.
It all started out good, with Watts being reported on the CPU. Then, I tried to zero the torque and it showed -0. So I reset to 0 and continued riding, within a minute of my restart, the power numbers faded quickly 200, 140, 75, 15, and then hovered under 25. I thought I may have displaying Torque on the CPU, tried the same rezero process, and it would read normal numbers, then quickly faded to under 25.
Also, notice the power spikes between minutes 7 and 40, those were after I pulled over and tried to reset the torque.
I checked my MAX and AVG power on the CPU and noticed that the AVG numbers were dropping continuously, like it was actually averaging the under 25 Watts into my ride numbers. Then I tried to see if I could get the MAX Watts to increase and it registered a higher number. The transmission icon was on continously.
Got home and downloaded the file and it showed accurate numbers for the first 7 minutes of the ride (this is when I tried to zero torque) and then everything was much lower.
I did a torque test and the default number is reading 538 - obviously higher than the desired 512.
Jesse - you out there.....any ideals? Anyone else seen anything similar?
