Hey guys I just signed up for zwift… I bought a tacx satori smart trainer to do this last week and am setting it up now.
Im wondering whats the best way for me to use this. I have a few options so Im wondering what peoples thoughts are.
1. Can I do everything via a phone/ or tablet? Or do I really need a tv screen or monitor to really see everything there is to offer?
I have a chromebook and I thought that would be ideal, and least amount of hassle for me as its portable. Im not sure its functional with the trainer though I dont think it is.
2. I have two other options at home, either set up in front of my home pc where I currently have a triple monitor setup that I use for Iracing (car racing simulator). I figure this would probably be ideal but I dont really like where I would have to set my trainer.
Option b would be to run an hdmi from my pc connected with the ant+ and use my big screen tv. If I do this Ill be about 8-10 feet from my pc… will I need an extension cord for the ant + or will the signal reach that far?
3, And lastly, is there anywhere I can see how many people are signed up for an upcoming event, or get an idea how many people are usually involved in an event? I really have no idea what to expect for participation… is there usually a lot of people at any given time online, or is it sporadic where there are times nobody is on?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
