Z-wheeler trike

(Marcus) #1

Please bring back the “ZWIFT Z-WHEELER” trike! Obviously not as a quick bike but it’s fun to ride around on a ‘rubbish’ bike sometimes!

It also has uses, say if you’re riding with friends or in a group ride which is ‘too easy’ for you to gain any training benefit from, then this adds a handicap of sorts and keeps you with your friends. I do this occasionally with the Buffalo bike, but it’s only a few % slower so not much help/hindrance.

These things are more for occasional days, halloween, April fool, Christmas, easter. It would look to much as a game to me…

It is a game. It looks like a game all the time. People ride around on bikes with neon tubes for wheels. :stuck_out_tongue:

Gets my vote! :smiley:

Agreed with Daren, the Tron bike used by >50% in races already makes it clearly look like a game.

Imagine races (up the Alpe!!!) on Z-Wheelers…
CatA on Z-wheelers
CatB on Buffalos
CatC&D on Trons

There’s loads of good serious fun on Zwift, let’s have some more silly fun too! :smiley:

I would love to do a trike only race!

But the Zwift environment should simulate the riding experience of a trike, where your cadence is proportional to the wheel speed.

Only if we can drift coming back down the Alpe.

Tell me that wouldn’t be a fun mini game. Trike racing down the Alpe. Do it just like the outlaw race used to. Neutral around the top loop and racing starts at the banner.

Yes, just seen this! That would be an awesome goal! Just spent all of my drops on the 858/disc though, so a long-term goal!

Is there any chance of us getting the trike? It’s already in Zwift, so literally all that needs doing is a line of code to put it in the Dropshop (Level 50 and 5 mil drops?).

It’s so little work that the folks at Zwift HQ managed to do it accidently with the 808/Disc :wink: hahaha

I could see a fun Trike recovery spin now.
