Elite Muin and Misuro B+

Postby hayward_phil » Fri Jul 21, 2017 10:25 pm

Hi,
I have an Elite Muin (S/N 10227) and the Misuro B+ sensor. I've set the Misuro to 3 led blinks and the wheel circumference to 2070mm. I am using the upto date e-training app on an iPhone. The power reading it gives seems less than half what I would expect. It would be hard to get it above 100W for more than a few minutes. I'm honestly not that bad. Using a powertap rear wheel the other day I had a pretty easy ride of about an hour and a half averaging around 200W. Is there anything I can do?
Thanks for any help, Phil.

Hi Phil

First a little note: you don't have to compare the behavior of the trainer with what you experience on an outdoor training.
The Turbo Muin is not a simulator, its power curve grows faster than on road.

I'll do an example to clarify this point.
Suppose to ride on road with a 0% slope. At 30km/h you'll probably have a power of around 130 - 150W.
If you ride on Turbo Muin at the same speed, you'll develop more than 400W.

That said, it is also possible that the trainer is too hard as 100W is a feasible power.
Do you hear any strange sound while you're riding?
The pedaling is smooth?

Thank you very much for replying.

The pedaling is smooth. There are no strange sounds. I use my race bike which is very well maintained.

I wouldn't compare power at speed at all on the trainer. I wouldn't even look at speed. What I'd compare is the effort I perceive against the power. My hope was to be able to estimate my FTP then train accordingly but the figure is far too low to be useful. Regardless of speed I can easily maintain more than double the power on the road than I would do on the trainer. That can't be right can it?
