Which bike?!


(Steve Haran) #1

Hey, I’ve just discovered Zwift and I’m excited!

I want to buy an exercise bike for this, and one that will change resistance as Zwift goes up a hill for example? I think this will do that:

But are there any cheaper alternatives? ie:

Would that work?

Thanks in advance.

Here is a link for compatible hardware for Zwift: https://zwift.com/hardware#error=login_required&state=5fe0d99f-57cb-410f-8a3b-974bc97080b8

Here is a good place for reviews: https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2017/10/annual-trainer-recommendations.html

If you already have a bike you would need just need a smart trainer to simulate elevation changes.

A Wattbike Atom is a good choice if you don’t already have a bike.

I recommend a bicycle and a smart trainer. That way you have a B bike just in case. I bought a wahoo kickr and got tired of swapping out the bicycle so i picked up a one year old Cannondale Caad8 with 105 components for 600, so now when my A bike is in the shop, i have a bike to ride outside still

N+1… You’re very disciplined to only have an A& B bike. I envy your restraint.
