That is correct. I am not using the Wahoologan App. My Kickr is controlling TrainerRoad and the data being displayed and recorded is from my SRM.
My instructions allow you to calibrate your Kickr to match your power meter. Basically, you get a Kickr that measures power correctly. It's what was promised by Wahoo. No new firmware or Wahooligan app required.
I know my posts have been long-winded and perhaps confusing, but I didn't want people to mess up their Kickrs by skipping a step. I really recommend following my previous instructions closely, but very simply this is how the process calibrates your Kickr:
SIMPLE EXPLANATION OF HOW MY CALIBRATION INSTRUCTIONS WORK:
If your power meter reads lower than your Kickr, then your Kickr is not creating enough resistance. By tensioning the belt, more resistance will be created and your power meter will read higher. Using my instructions, you can use this fact to get your Kickr and power meter to very closely match.
Please use the full instructions, though, as it's important to loosen the tension before you start the calibration to prevent the belt from getting too tight after the calibration. It's also important to not do another spindown calibration after using the belt-tensioning calibration, as that will bring the Kickr back to its original state.
Additionally, I've mentioned that I don't believe it's now possible to control TrainerRoad using the current beta app without the Wahooligan app running as this was clearly stated by a Wahoo rep on this forum. He stated that you might get TrainerRoad to work with the beta tempoorarily, but that it would not be permanent and that the Wahoologan app always would always need to be running. The rep stated that this would change with the finished version of the firmware AND when TrainerRoad integrates the functionality in an update version of their TR software. Perhaps others have found a workaround, but I'm skeptical as there are reports from people in this forum that are achieving functionality that Wahoo and TrainerRoad say just isn't possible at this time.
I think Krispy's plan is the BEST...
The way I see it is this:
1. Make SURE that your SRM or external power meter is calibrated properly.
2. Use Krispy's plan to "FIX" the KICKR.
3. Record power on TR any way you want... either from external PM or KICKR. After his fix... we won't even need another PM (which is the way it should be in the first place).
After it's working properly you can ride whatever bike you want on your KICKR (without an external PM)... and be sure the resistance is correct... as long as we don't do another spindown :) Then... all BETS ARE OFF!!
