What type of bike should I use

Hi all,

I am fairly new to ZWIFT and a first time poster in this forum. I was using a hybrid bike and doing okay really. I thought I would by a racing bike and put that on my trainer but I find cycling on it much harder and am not getting near my times on the hybrid bike.

As an example I can cruise quite easily at 30kmph on the hybrid but find it very hard to get over 25 on the racer.

I am son a TACX smart trainer. I just set up with the hybrid and went. I only paid £220 for the racer but it is quite small and light compared to the other which is massive in comparison.

Does anyone have any advice.


Have you calibrated the trainer after you switch bike? Maybe the racer is the wrong size for you? wheel on trainers are known for bad accuracy.
