Hi, I’m Kampy.
I’m brand new here and have never been on Zwift, but I’ve been interested for a long time, and have now decided to buy a smart trainer and go for it.
I’ve been trying to research my options for buying both new / used, but having a hard time deciding. I like to do a lot of research on purchases like this, and can’t seem to find much unbiased, objective comparisons on smart trainers.
I came here to these Zwift forums expecting to find a section dedicated to smart trainers, but I’m not seeing much here in terms of model comparisons and recommendations. But maybe I’m not looking in the right places?
If any of you can point me in the direction of some good info to help me decide what model smart trainer to buy (Whether on these forums, or anywhere else online) I’d appreciate it!
FWIW, I’m leaning in the direction of the wheel-on Tacx trainers with incline, but having a hard time deciding between the Flow, Vortex, and Bushido. I also saw a used Tacx Genius for sale, and wondering how that compares? It seems these models were all released a few years ago- are they still current as far as new tech goes? If I buy a 3 yr old Bushido used, is it the same as a brand new Bushido (feature-wise)?
Any help / links much appreciated!
