wow, this is a long thread.
I’m still fairly new to Zwift AND riding. So I’m still working on my understanding in both worlds.
If it’s all about adjusting the gears - why don’t you call it like that ?
Wouldn’t it be easier if you ask the user which setup/gear ratio is used?
And if the user wants to adjust that he could choose from a list of concrete numbers - Zwift is doing the math for the simulation…
I’m using my cyclocross bike on my Kickr. 36/46 in the front - 11/28 rear.
I would prefer if Zwift offered me i.e for an AdZ ie a 34 / x & 11/32
or a standard Road setup for flatter routes.
In addition Zwift could suggest which gearing could be best/standard for my chosen route.
No slider at all.
Just a setting to use my actual gearing hardware on the bike or simulate concrete different hardware.
And I wouldnt be disappointed, when I take my bike out to the next climb and am totally surprised that I:m not able to ride it even if I rode AdZ in Zwift.
Not everyone knows all of this.
Just my 2 cents
