Thanks for the comments! I already do start / stop / save. My commute is 18 miles round trip / about 70 minutes each day, and I’m in my low aerobic zone whenever I use it (I have to pedal to go… it doesn’t have an independent throttle), so it’s a great way to get my long slow distance done in the hilly area where I live, and make my road bike time a little more exciting.
I assumed I couldn’t have an actual power meter since it is a mid-drive and I have to have platform pedals for how I use it, but maybe there’s a crank-arm that would fit.
The bike actually does report power from the torque sensor via bluetooth, but it is very far from accurate. Before I used Xert I used to log it and it would drive Garmin’s fitness metrics crazy when I switched bikes; it seems to report more power than I actually put out. I would consider doing the multiple Xert account thing, but I’m already doing that for running and copying workouts between three accounts would be far too much.
My cadence on the ebike is about 83 most of the time (that’s where I hit the governor), and I’m closer to 90 on my road bike, but hopefully that’s not a huge difference. Just trying to get some of the work accounted for so I don’t over-train. But I can get a cadence report from the bike… I’ll turn it on and see how it changes things.
