Cycleops fluid2 quality question
Has anyone noticed that the Cycleops fluid2 trainer looses resistance after one month of use?
Here is what I noticed. I train every day for over one month at about 17 MPH with intervals at 20 MPH.
I checked my Cateye Astrale 8 against a calculated speed. 85 RPM, 53/21 gears, 700 x 28 tires (checked 120 PSI) equals ~17 MPH same as the Cateye 8.
My HRM was about 125 max. a month ago doing this speed for one hour.
Today my HRM was 115 Max over a 90 minute workout. I was by no means maxed out.
Did I get stronger OR did the Cycleops fluid2 get weaker? Another possible explaination is Nutrition.
I really would appreciate feedback on this.
