A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

my goodness, indoor watts on the Saris H2 feel FAR easier than outside watts on the pavement.
i've compared the Assioma pedals with the trainer, and they match up just about perfectly.
but outside, 200w "feels" easily like 350w inside on the trainer.
is this typical?

also, i notice quite frequently that the power reading from the Assioma drops dramatically quite often.
not to mention the constant 30-50w power fluctuation over consistent gradient, and i have my computer set to 3s average.
and there is one section of road, where no matter how hard i sprint, power numbers are always around 150ish watts.
could something be interfering with the ANT+ connection?

If it’s Zwift the default 50 % of reality seti g is the issue. While you can get the wattage. The 50% reality does affect your legs like 100% reality.

He did say he's using wahoo system... Reason I ask was if you were using Zwift you could have dropped the file into zwiftiziler 2.0 and seen about the dropout issues you were having.

Use the H2 with SYSTM while recording the same ride with your Assiomas+Fenix. Upload both FIT files to https://compare-the-watts.com/
