CycleOps Indoor Cycle 300/400

What is the CycleOps Indoor Cycle?

The CycleOps Indoor Cycle is a stationary bike that has a built in PowerTap that can connect with TrainerRoad via ANT+. TrainerRoad is compatible with the 300 and 400 series of the Indoor Cycle. 

*Note: Due to the proprietary communication protocol the Indoor Cycle 300/400 uses, it will not be compatible with newer versions of the TrainerRoad application.  However, it will always be available on our Legacy "Air" application. 

 

Joule Setup
From the factory, the Joule 3.0 comes setup to pair with both the power tap and the resistance unit within the Cycleops 300/400 Pro. If you wish to use the Joule 3.0 in conjunction with Trainer Road to record your workout data, you'll need to un-pair the resistance unit from the Joule. If the resistance unit is not un-paired within the Joule, both the Joule and Trainer Road will attempt to set the target power of the resistance unit. This will cause erratic resistance changes during a TrainerRoad workout as the Joule continuously overrides the target power set by TrainerRoad. 

To un-pair the resistance unit from the Joule follow these steps:
1.  Press the [MODE] button until the Menu appears
2.  Select the Sensors menu by highlighting it and moving the joystick to the right
3.  Select the RU Sensor by scrolling down using the joystick and then moving the joystick to the right
4.  Under Select Sensor, highlight the RU sensor (RuIC1) and move the joystick to the right
5.  Select Delete Sensor by scrolling down using the joystick and then moving the joystick to the right.
6.  At the "Are you sure?" prompt, select Yes by highlighting the text and moving the joystick to the right

At this point, the Joule is setup to be used in conjunction with TrainerRoad. The resistance will no longer be controlled by the Joule, but the Joule can be used to capture data from your workouts. The resistance unit can always be re-paired to the Joule, if you wish to use the Joule with the Cycleops 400 Pro independent of TrainerRoad.

Cycleops 300/400 Pro Pairing
The first time that the Cycleops 400 Pro is paired to TrainerRoad it must be un-plugged in order to trigger the appropriate pairing mode within the resistance unit. Steps 1 & 3 do not apply to the 300 as it does not have a resistance unit. 

To perform an initial pairing of the Cycleops 400 Pro with TrainerRoad, follow these steps:
1. Un-plug the Cycleops 400 Pro resistance unit.


2. Select the Pair Button under the Cycleops 300/400 Pro section of theTrainer Road devices tab.


3. Plug-in the Cycleops 400 Pro resistance unit.

4. Pedal the Cycleops 300/400 Pro.
5. The Cycleops 300/400 Pro section of the TrainerRoad devices tab turns green indicating the power tap is paired.

6.  Within 5 seconds, the Cycleops 300/400 Pro section of the TrainerRoad devices tab is populated with the device id of the resistance unit and power data begins to appear on the devices tab of TrainerRoad.

Once you've done an initial pairing with the Cycleops 300/400 Pro, and TrainerRoad has obtained the device ID, you should be able to leave the resistance unit plugged-in and simply open and close the TrainerRoad application. If you un-pair the device from Trainer Road, you must repeat the initial pairing steps above.

Getting Speed to match between the Joule and TrainerRoad
Trainer Road is setup to use a wheel circumference of 2096mm with the Cycleops 300/400 Pro.  In order to make the speed and distance values shown by the Joule match Trainer Road, both must be set to a wheel circumference of 2096mm.


To Set/Verify the flywheel circumference on the Joule follow these steps:
1.  Press the [MODE] button until the Menu appears
2.  Select the Sensors menu by highlighting it and moving the joystick to the right
3.  Select the PowerIC Sensor by moving the joystick to the right
4.  Under Select Sensor, highlight the PowerIC sensor (PowerIC1) and move the joystick to the right
5.  Verify the circumference is set to 2096 mm. If the circumference is not set to 2096 mm, change the value to 2096 mm using the joystick.

To Set/Verify the flywheel circumference in TrainerRoad follow these steps:
1. Select the Profile button on the TrainerRoad application
2. Update the Wheel Circumference to be 2096 mm
