Im a bit of a newbie. Got a Croix de Fer for occasional commuting and short weekend rides. Decided this year to get a bit more serious so hired a Wattbike Trainer. Its been great so far doing Sufferfest videos indoors in the snow!
Anyway I only hired the Wattbike in January so missed September to December and want to get set up for later this year as the weather in Scotland in the winter is pretty lousy!
So yesterday I went to my mates workplace as they have bought a Wattbike Atom for their little work gym.
Had a very brief go on it and found a weird thing. In "gear" mode the resistance still seems to vary. I would have thought it would be constant a bit like the older Wattbike that I have.
I messaged Wattbike support and they messaged back saying you had to keep to a steady cadence.
Can anyone explain if this is right? It seems a bit odd. I was contemplating buying an Atom when my Wattbike goes back. However if I don't understand how it works I might buy the Wattbike Trainer that I already have!
