I’m just trying out your swift ap. “Trial period” and today was only my second ride. But I noticed that there didn’t seem to be the same resistance when I was climbing up hills ?
What am I doing wrong please ? The bike was set up just the same ? But up the hills it didn’t get harder ?

Kind regards
Paul Williams

A run down of your setup would help use in determining your issue.

Did you pair the trainer as controllable?

What do you have the difficulty set to?

I’m not sure ? I’ve never actually “ set up “ anything I’ve just connected with blue tooth and that’s it ?
Please tell me what I should do ?
When I put swift on it just puts me straight amongst riding ? I would love to know how to set it up ? I just want to ride and feel the resistance etc etc

What trainer are you using (not all trainers are controllable)?

What is your trainer difficulty slider set to in the settings menu? 

A pic of your pairing screen could be helpful.

I’m using a tacx smart trainer. Il

Are you saying I should have it on controllable ?
How do I get into my settings ?


(Paul Williams) #7

How can I send you a picture of my settings ?

You would pair it as controllable on the pairing screen.

Make sure the trainer difficulty slider is not set to OFF: https://zwiftinsider.com/using-the-trainer-difficulty-setting-in-zwift/
