By pressing F2 you can switch the CRANKBOT window on/off. This option allows you to spawn your personal Pace Bot.
It has the following options you can adjust to fit your needs:
Power (Watt): This is the power the Crankbot uses.
Ascend Adjustments: Most riders tend to produce more power when the resistance increases like going uphill. This value adjusts the power the bot uses when ascending, so when Power is set to 200 and this value to 10% the bot will increase up to 220 watts when going uphill.
Descend Adjustments: This is the opposite of the previous option. This value adjusts the power the bot uses when descending, so when Power is set to 200 and this value to 10% the bot will decrease it’s effort to 180 watts when going downhill.
System Weight: The weight of the bot + bike (called system weight) used for the physics simulation of the bot.
Spawn: This spawn the bot at your position.
Despawn: Will remove the bot.
Teleport to Player: Teleports the bot directly beside the player. Very useful if you lost contact to the bot or lost it 🙂
