Which bike?!

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.

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.
