I am relatively new to ZWIFT. As an outdoor riding season is winding down in Ontario I plan to spend more time zwifting & racing. Thus my question… Does it matter in the racing context what actual bike I use?
My current set-up is Wahoo Kickr and MTB Rocky Mountain Soul 29. The bike was my first MTB bike which I bought in 2011 if I recall it correctly. Though I maintain it regularly the shifting is not perfect (it is an entry-level bike). Other than that it is good for training.
I wonder if I gain any competitive advantage switching to a road bike. Understandably aerodynamic, weight, etc. does not matter in stationary environment. But maybe the shifting does. Or there is a mental aspect…
Thank you for all responses in advance.
