First ride!

Super excited to get on this when i get home from work this arvo! My setup is that i use ant + garmin stick with my garmin HR monitor and stages crank sensor for power and cadence, I don’t use a speed sensor anymore as of having the power meter, is that likely to be an issue? My home trainer is a KK road machine.

Will be online around 6pm Aust EST!

Welcome Jamie. No, you’re lack of speed sensor won’t be an issue since you have a power meter. All you need is power. Speed in the game is calculated by crunching your power and weight through the game’s physics engine so it rarely matches rear wheel speed anyway.

Have fun!

Thanks, grr my ant+ stick has given up the ghost, can anyone recommend a good/cost effective replacement?

I have this one:

I also have a Suunto like this one, but haven’t used it with Zwift.

Suunto is a few bucks cheaper on Amazon but that’s about it. Good luck.
