Newbie here - just bought a Wahoo Kickr to do some indoor training during the dark Scottish evenings!
I’m a mountain biker, and have hooked my old 2017 Stumpjumper onto the Kickr. The Stumpy has an Eagle X01 groupset, so I’ve bought the Eagle NX for the Kickr as it’s not got an XD driver. The indexing is slightly out, so I’ll have to tweak that before some real use. Bummer - I hoped it would just be a straight fit and go.
I had a brief blast round, and realised that I was pretty much in my top gear all the time on flats. The 11-50 cassette is generally designed for steep hills, and is quite easy to spin out on flats and downhills.
I wondered if there was a way of changing some settings to give me a bit more resistance, and see there is a ‘trainer difficulty’ setting. I’m led to believe this is an adjustment for different gear ranges - but doesn’t effect flat riding?
Is there a way of adding resistance so that I’m not spinning out on flats? What ‘trainer difficulty’ setting should I be using to help make my gearing more useful in Zwift?!
Thanks in advance…
