I’m new to Zwift. I am a mtb rider, but am using a road bike on my Tacx Smart trainer. Gearing is 50/34 on Cranks with an 11/28 Cassette. Is it okay to use this gearing on MTB specific training plans like Dirt Destroyer or Singletrack Slayer?
I’m no expert but from what I understand this is where the ‘trainer difficulty’ settings will help you.
If you find you are ‘spinning out’ then increase the difficulty until you find the ‘ sweet spot’.
I hope others can confirm this or actually give you better advise/info.
Or obviously I’d you are finding it too hard reduce the difficulty.
Thanks Andy. Will start the training plan and see how it goes playing around with difficulty settings.
That shouldn’t matter when using ERG mode on a smart trainer.
I think you will be fine using the road bike for this training plan. Gearing should not make a difference with ERG mode enabled.
Yeah, Mike. Slowly figuring things out. Beginning to understand how ERG mode works in workouts. I think I’ll be fine with road bike gearing.
