I’m a new Zwift user, and I’m just getting all of my gear together. (plus more coming I think)
So far I have a new Saris M2, I bought trainer tires for both mine & my wife’s bikes. (got a great deal on some Tacx tires), and I bought an Apple TV 4K, plus we’ve been using the companion apps too.
So I’m having a few issues/questions.
When I use the Saris “clutch knob” the roller is crushed so hard into the tire, that I have a LOT of trouble just getting it to roll…Yes the tire is inflated to the max pressure of 100PSI, and no I’m not pushing in on the clutch knob while tightening it. (both of these things I’ve already read about)…so basically instead of using the “clutch” I’ve been tightening the roller until it contacts the tire, then going about 2 turns further…so far this seems OK, and I’m not getting any roller slipping, even under hard efforts.
After each use, there is quite a bit of rubber? residue left on the trainer roller, I don’t “see” any wear on the tire, but that residue has to be coming from somewhere…so, what do you think is causing it? and should I be cleaning it off after every use?
Since the wife and I ride entirely different styles of bikes, and run different size wheels/tires, do I need to do a “calibration” on the M2 every time we switch between bikes?
Sorry for the long first post, and thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
