Changing Virtual Bike


(Lee Harding (TFC)) #1

Allo all,

Fairly new to Zwift so please be gentle. I’ve completed 4 out of the 5 London races, so loving Zwift at the moment. For this race I decided to change my virtual bike from the Zwift Carbon to Zwift TT bike and what a bad move.

The TT bike had 4 out of 4 stars for Aero but only 1 for weight compared to the 3 stars for weight and 2 on Aero.

I completed stage 2 in 59:31 @ 2.8w/kg AVG 239w yet I finished 302 everyone around me was outputting 2.4w/kg and AVG around 170w. I pressume the bike I used was the reason for the slowness?

Thanks in advance

The Zwift TT bike does not get any draft assistance either.

I did notice that, I was going great guns up hills but really struggled on the flats. Lesson learnt I suppose.
