I need some help. I got in on the Stages order, and a couple of weeks ago, went to my local LBS to have the power meter installed on my bike. They helpfully paired it with my Garmin, showed me the app for my phone and how to battery check from the phone and calibrate from phone or watch. I've had a few rides since then and all have been plagued with drop outs where I lose power and cadence readings from my Garmin. Sometimes this lasts for a few seconds, sometimes 30s or longer and it's frequent... almost constant actually. Sometimes when this happens, and I'm frustrated, I drop my arm down by my crank and the readings come back... this could just be a coincidence. I'm a little person on a little bike - I really find it hard to believe that the problem is proximity.
All of my rides have been on the trainer... either on my Kickr at home, or taking my dumb trainer to the Spin studio. Last Wednesday, with some help from Google, I took a bunch of measures to try and make it better: updated the firmware on my power meter, turned off blue tooth on my Garmin, re-connected Garmin & Stages via ANT+, and headed off to Spin class with a dumb trainer... so no chance here that it's competing signals with the Kickr, or my phone (left in the car), or my Garmin. Same problem.
So what am I doing wrong?
