Re: ANT+ genius compatibility

It possible! UWP can communicate with Win32 process. So can do Win32 bridge for ANT+. https://github.com/Microsoft/DesktopBridgeToUWP-Samples/tree/master/Samples/AppServiceBridgeSample or https://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2017/12/04/extend-desktop-application-windows-10-features-using-new-visua...

Re: Tacx Neo Smart - Virtual speed?

I have tested the resistance of our Neo's with the Tacx Utility app at speeds down to 2-3 Km/h and 20-30 rpm cadences. Comparing the outputs from the Tacx app to those of my Garmin measure power and cadence from our SRM's and found the cadence to be spot on, and the resistance of the Neo to be with...

Re: Tacx Neo Smart - Virtual speed?

Somebody test Neo resistance at speed 6-10km/h?
required power can calculate here http://www.cyclingpowerlab.com/PowerSpeedScenarios.aspx
(CdA need set to 0)

Re: Tacx Neo Smart - Virtual speed?

If slope slightly exceed neo capabilites, then realistic slope will be as in second column (must be 25%) 6km/h - 11.4% / 15.0% 7km/h - 14.3% / 17.4% 8km/h - 16.0% / 19.5% 9km/h - 17.85%/ 21.1% 10km/h- 18.3% / 21.5% But if exceed is bigger neo can give slightly more resistance. On Power training if s...

Re: Tacx Neo Smart - Virtual speed?

Heigh gain (for 1 seconds) =1sec *V km/hour * slope=1sec *V 1000/3600 meter/sec * slope=V*slope*(1/3.6) meter A small inaccuracy in the calculation of height. Slope is the ratio of vertical displacement to horizontal displacement. Your formula is correct for the horizontal velocity component. Yes n...

Re: Tacx Neo Smart - Virtual speed?

And what is a realistic maximum slope for Neo (75 kg)? The Tacx's site provides conflicting information. This table shows the slope of 20 %, not 25 %: http://wwwstatic3.tacx.nl/Media/Default/Downloads/KeyFeatures/Trainer%20Overview%202015%20EN%20Spread%20LR.pdf Strange, At my trainer box written 25...

Neo: probably the same thing.
Need realistic slope for 75kg multiple by 75 and divide by your total weight.

Re: Tacx user from RUSSIA

После нажатия на start нужно раскрутить колесо до скорости более 30км/ч, потом там пишет что нужно остановиться и ничего не делать. А если станок начинает сам крутить колесо - не знаю что делать, мой станок не имеет эту функцию.

I check old fortius 2 program. I ride all time with real speed 15 km/h. When i increase slope , power reach maximum 160 watt at 3.6 slope and dont change anymore. With same settings and real speed(15 km/h) at tts4.18.5 power reach maximun 190watt at 3.2 slope, and next drops to 130 watt and dont cha...

Re: Virtual speed

And at big slope with virtual speed need ride with power>70 watt or it show inadequate speed/power values and stops training - very annoying problem.

Here can see problem. errpower.png I ride all time with same speed ~ 20km/h(check by bike computer) at free cycling. And slowly increase slope from 0 to 5%. At 3% slope real speed changes to virtual and power drops from 215W to 170W. graph must be so e_1.png not so e_2.png This problem is very actua...

Re: Virtual speed

When virtual speed will work correct at i-flow? When appear virtual speed , power decreased by 30%. For example at 3.2% slope normal speed ~ 250 watt, at 3.3% - virtual speed and power only 180 watt. Why lost 70 watt??? I ride with same resistance, transmission, cadence, only slope +0.1% - lost 70 w...
