Hi Thomas, 

Unless your spin bike transmits watts via ANT+, you would need a separate ANT+  pedal based power meter to use Zwift.  

For more information on what trainers are compatible with Zwift and a speed sensor setup check our knowledge base https://support.zwift.com/hc/en-us/articles/203152565-Which-trainers-does-Zwift-support-

I was under the impression that you could use speed and cadence/HR to calculate virtual power. (Therefor giving us an option to use a “cheaper” setup until such time as we could afford a setup with power.)???
