Gear display for Stages SB20

Just adding my +1.

I just picked up a Stages SB20 with the recent promotion including a year of Zwift and I was very disappointed to find that if I want to run Zwift on my phone I won’t be able to see my gearing. This seems like a serious oversight (both for Stages and Zwift) and it’s pretty shocking to see that this feature was requested almost 3 years ago and hasn’t seen any progress.

I’m an experienced developer myself and this is the sort of thing I think should be a priority, especially considering the huge QoL benefits for what I would say is a relatively low development time investment. If the Zwift team doesn’t want to make this a priority then where is an API so an interested 3rd party like myself can implement it?

Because of the new update with the steering getting more prominent, could it finally be?

Here’s to hoping!

There is really only 3 smart bikes out there at the moment - how hard can it be to implement gear display and steering for these…

It’s frustrating indeed; as @Leonardo_Nascimento (and others) have mentioned before, it really shouldn’t matter how many types of smart bikes are out there if they just implement the shift profiles - then every application that wants to display gear status just writes their integration once for each transport protocol. Job done.

Has there been any recent update to this request? Looks like it’s not been a priority for a few years now???

For Zwift (to me) its seems support for the SB20 additional functionality is dead - almost 4yrs now - if it hasn’t happened by now, its never going to happen. Event stages themselves have posted videos on how to fit the Play buttons to the SB20 - even they have given up!

It works enough to say its fully supported, and now they have their own gearing cog, buttons and the like, the SB20 is just another trainer.

Hi @shooj, hi @James_Zwift,
any news out of the developers tribe whether we may expect a gearing info and/or a utilization of the buttons natively in Zwift?

Indievelo has support for SB20 extended features, including an on-screen gear display. I’m going to try it out tonight!

Hi @shooj, or any other Zwift-teammate,

is there any chance to get an indication whether all SB20 owner may see a gear indicator implemented?

I see from the SB20 user group that IndieVelo has SB20 gear info displaying now.

At this point it’s past being amusing that Zwift hasn’t incorporated this.

That’s all the platforms I know of, that support the SB20 with gear info. All EXCEPT Zwift now…
