Hi. Sometimes my cadence range and resistance range does not display. It is almost as if it is working using my FTP but yet I am not in a power zone class. Why would this be. It never happened before but now it has happened a few times. So my cadence shows and my resistance shows but it does not have the range that the instructor gives so I am having to remember it.

is there something that I am doing or have done to change it?

Also I have tried everything I possibly can and I absolutely cannot beat any of my PR (personal records) level! Why is that. I thought I would get stronger and fitter yet I am not passing my PR levels?

Hi! I wrote up some tips on getting a PR here. Let me know if any of those help. I do find I don't get PRs for a while and then I will get a bunch.

On the ranges, they don't show up on older classes. Not sure why that is but Peloton doesn't seem to have added them to classes before a certain time. It could be that you rode a couple of older classes?

Thank you Stefon. Makes sense now. And as I have been working out every day - it explains why I may not be reaching any new PR's. Phew!

One more question please...
I did the FTP test when I got the bike and it automatically updated the settings as I did not have to do anything. I did it again recently and there is a slight improvement which is good but whenever I do a powerzone ride, when Dennis says you should be in 3 now.... I am usually in zone 4 .... would that be correct? I seem to be more out of breath than what he is saying I should be for my zone. Should I do the test again for the bike to automatically update again?

Hi. Yes, it's a good idea to do the FTP test periodically to make sure you're working in the right zones.

A random tip i got recently on output was to raise the seat up and forward and drop the handlebars lower so you get into more of a position like a triathlete or road biker. Most people naturally do what's comfortable which is to have the handlebars up high. My friends have found that this helps produce higher output. Worth a shot!
