Just about starting my cycling journey on Zwift (virtually and otherwise).
Looking for a solution that will enable my family to make indoor cycling fun.
Searched the web for a stationary bike compatible with Zwift but got confused with Zwift controlled bikes Vs. bikes that allow you to relay stats to Zwift.
I understand that with ANT+ I can relay data to Zwift but not sure if the experience will be considerably better with Zwift controlled bikes.
Looking to buy an indoor stationary bike that can be used by my wife, my daughter and myself (1 bike between all 3 of us) and we want to use Zwift as our training partner.
I have yet to make my bike investment but don’t want to be spending on the bells and whistles with no real value addition. At the same time want to buy a bike that I can use for long term, hence short term bike upgrades are out of question, though can keep adding to my ‘kit’ to keep interest going.
I plan to hook up the bike to a TV screen via a mobile device.
Looking for answers to the following questions:
- Will Zwift controlled bike give a considerable upgrade to riding & racing experience. We are a fairly competitive family so race ranking etc. would really matter to us.
- Depending on the answer above, which Stationary bike would you recommend along with the accessories to get started.
Thanks guys, see you on the rides soon!
