ERG Death Spiral.... Methinks

atwl77: Yes, I believe that's the issue. The moving of the pedals becomes just about impossible, when the workout calls for a surge in effort. It's certainly not lag. the resistance never dials back. It just gets worse and worse.
It seems like I need to turn off ERG mode for these type of workouts. All I want to be able to do is match the power numbers the workout calls for. It's good training. If I want resistance, I'll set up a workout that way, or I'll do another trek up Alpe du zwift
I also believe you can, in most apps, set up workouts where you can call for a set resistance for a period of time.
unterhausen: It shouldn't be a struggle. I think we're both in the same boat. I ride too much!
I'll see if I can find the setting for "Free mode" in the Saris settings.. I believe it is there. I'll just go between, when I'm set to do a 1 hour workout.
Thanks for the clarifiation.
