What can I do to 'reset' the Directo and/or apply firmware patch to fix the ERG problem on the Directo?
Thanks in advance.
I used Direto for two and a half months.
ERG mode has never been good, it is an intrinsic characteristic of direto.
By design it is naturally slow, too much latency, so for split Zwift programs it is bad.
Then he will break his belt because the tensioner pulley is of poor quality. I am a technician and as soon as I realized the quality of the transmission I knew that the belt would have to be changed regularly.
The direto 1 is not a good home trainer, I was lucky in the end, the French importer was Shimano and they gave a new one to the store where I had bought the Direto. It was a long time but the shop finally paid me the Direto in full.
Then I bought a Tacx Neo, and here I am in the heaven of heaven to compare that there are home trainers who work correctly with the ERG mode.
Smooth pedaling, no noise, precise.
I use it for a year and a half and I am happy as well even if it cost me 300 euros more.
