I am very new to indoor training as I have finally realised that my road running days are drawing to a close. (Ankles, knees age etc etc )
In my wisdom I have decided to jump headlong into buying a spin bike and setting it up in a dedicated room with tv on the wall. Awesome I hear you say… however I then realise due to being cheap and not going full peloton that I have purchased a bike that has blue tooth 4.0 and a chest heart rate monitor but no power meter or cadence/speed sensors .
From what I have read in order to get the value out of Zwift I need a way to accurately measure speed and/or power?
I think the biggest issue with fitting the cheaper option of a speed/cadence device to the flywheel of the bike is accuracy due to the gauging of fly wheel circumference. The bike I purchased was not cheap its a Sports Tech Sx500 with a 25kg flywheel.
Can anybody please offer advice on how I can get up and going or do I need to cancel my order and start again?
Thanks in the meantime
