Good morning all,
I’m about to jump head first into indoor cycling and due to budget and multiple users, I’m going to purchase the Bowflex C6/Schwinn IC4. If I was the sole user, I’d get an old road bike with a trainer but due to space and my wife who is much shorter than me, that’s not an option. I saw some guides about Zwift and it scratched my gamer itch! After hours of research, I discovered that users of this bike are reporting godly numbers on Zwift. Being an avid gamer (World of Warcraft for too many years…) I want to be fair and have fun. Most importantly, I want my hard work to actually pay off and legitimately earn my times.
I was reading that many users are opting to recalibrate their machines when they get them, yet the results still may be a bit off. Seeing as the devices can only can be recalibrated so many times, I was interested in exploring other options. Enter power pedals.
Are power pedals a solution to this problem and are they worth it? I figure I’m good with spending extra for accuracy as I do the same for my gaming pcs. Also, what should I be looking for in terms of compatibility for the bike?
Thanks in advance! Looking forward to having fun while losing weight!
