This is the best feeling bike trainer I have ever tried. The "smart" functionality power numbers end up being very close to my crank based power meter results.

I don't think this bike trainer is a control trainer, right? So if you go up a mountain in Zwift, I don't believe this trainer makes it harder to pedal. I recently purchased Wahoo Snap Kickr and am very pleased.

It's dumb trainer in zwift terms. You don't need to buy separate sensors to use zwift but it won't actually control the resistance

Didn't realize that. Oh well. I would avoid then.

I have the "dumb" version. It's one of the better fluid trainers, but no adjustable resistance.

I second this comment. Wahoo Kickr Snap is the way to go. Makes Zwift very interactive with the automatic resistance. I only wish Zwift didn't increase their monthly subscription price.

I've been using this black flat thing, it has full hard core variable resistance based on this thing they advertise as gravity (might have spelled that wrong). Normally it is accompanied by lunch somewhere.

Okay, so I'm unclear why buying an indoor trainer is preferred..I can buy a lot of tires for 300 bucks. Can someone help me here?

I lived in the North East for a year... And I still got the occasional bike ride in. Other snowy and cold days I'd exercise by stair climbing.


Okay that said I'm not a hard core bicyclist... So yes I see your point. Thanks. Made me open my own eyes a bit. If I'm narrowly focused on biking every day (versus exercise every day), then this thing is useful.

For occasional use that is perfectly fine. But I have ridden both and can tell you they are worlds apart in terms of feel. Kinetic has a big heavy flywheel that much better replicates outdoor momentum. Cheap ones will slow down immediately when you stop pedaling and feel more like you are pedaling through mud. But both will keep you in shape and work, it's just a matter of how much you want to spend. Advice is usually to go with something cheap if you are unsure if you will use it. A lot of people absolutely hate riding on the trainer. Many others now do more miles indoors on apps like Zwift due to schedules, weather, safety, etc.

Wahoo Snap or Wahoo Kickr?
