a torque sensor controls how much the bike assists by how hard you push. but the gearing is what gives you the speed. using the hardest gear is not the best way to get exercise its the best way to blow out your knees. the rest way to exercise is to spin at a higher rpm and only push as hard as you can maintain for a long time. a bike is about low impact exercise. if you spin you can get a hundred miles if you only mash your going to run out of energy far faster.U
I am still confused about cadence vs torque sensors. I want to be able to choose my level of assistance, and my speed independently. So, I think cadence is correct for me. There are times I want to go a bit faster on a straight away...in PAS 2 or even 3, BUT I also want the exercise. So, I'm in highest gear. I don't want. to bike to decide to make it easier...Am I correct that cadence is best for this?
Hope this is helpful.
