I’m new to Zwift and I could use some advice with the settings and basic knowledge.
Information about me:
Weight: 58 KG
Trainer: Tacx Bushido Smart
So first of all there is the trainer difficulty… I’m not sure about what would be the optimal setting here…
I’m also unsure about the FTP. I did the FTP test with trainer difficulty at max while cycling on my small gear. I got 137 as FTP.
The second and last time that I did cycle with Zwift I just went for a random 30 min ride on my big gear and with the trainer difficulty at 50%… This time I got 220 FTP…
So my questions are:
What would be the optimal trainer difficulty for me?
Is it normal that my FTP changed so much?
Do I use my small gear or my big gear? Does it matter?
If there is more that I should take into account, please let me know as I want my settings to be as good/accurate as possible.
I’m also having problems calibrating my Tacx. The pointer is just outside the middle part (too tight part). However if I loosen the trainer abit more it slips… Any advice on this? And does it matter?
