Zwift for Christmas, safer than my streets

Ok, so I had a job that allowed me to cycle every morning for PT, I was racking 20-30 miles a day. Changed jobs and now my cycling is on my time, so I chose Zwift ( several of my buddies do it ).

Purchased a M2 and am going the Apple route. iPad iPhone TV trying it all. I can’t seem to get the calibration thing right. I know what 20 mph feels like in my legs, but I can’t seem to trust the calibration.

The nerd in me says that the tension on the roller is too much but Saris says up to a 1/3 deflection and let it click.

The one time I had it working right was great, but today I know I wasn’t riding 50 mph ( deleted that ride BTW )

If anyone sees an ah-ha that I am know aware of, let me know. Thanks in advance.


What are you using to do the calibration, Zwift or the Sais App?

I tried them all but right now Zwift. It’s the Zwift program that figures the voltage deltas to get the readout, I assume.

You should be using the trainers manufactures app to do calibration, the Zwift app might not have the most recent info on the firmware.

Ok…I will recal with the SARIS app


So tried Saris and it was still crazy wrong. Went back to a Zwift cal and it got better. Did a Crit race and got coned in D class. Went out strong, too strong got to the front once, but eventually finished 31st.

Hill resistance were not consistent, can some one explain the difficulty slider?

Do I have spin 10 mins, then cal every time I ride?

Those that know please assist.
