For those using zwift?

Post by clerkp » January 13th, 2019, 12:47 am

How do you decide to adjust the damper on hills decline? I typically ride at about 3.5 on the damper and get about 82 rpm. That’s my steady pace. Any advice as to how to adjust on the fly using zwift?

I will admit to being lazy and I just leave the damper on one setting for a whole ride, regardless of terrain. I normally ramp up my watts on a hill climb to mitigate some of the drop in speed, and then need a short breather on the downhill (light pedalling, or sometimes none if it's a steeper decline and I've overdone the uphill).

I was also thinking of maxing drag out on the uphill to give a slightly more realistic feel and make it easier to pedal out of the saddle, but I haven't experimented with that yet.

Anyone having trouble conncecting to zwift? My bikerg conncets to the iOS app but says no power source. I get no watts and the bike doesn't move on the screen.

I change it depending on what I'm trying to do. If I'm on a steep incline I sometimes push up to Damper 6 or 7 just to get a more realistic output but you don't have to.
