Not sure I understand the question. Indoor training. Did I misrepresent something?

No, I just thought you rode on rollers as opposed to a fixed position trainer. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else.

Got the used Kickr snap this afternoon. Took a few minutes to get it all talking to the Bolt and iPhone due to not using instructions. But easy enough and had a free Kinomaps account controlling the ride in no time.

Uhm, thatís addicting. I only planned to get it working due to much suffering in the gym at lunch today. Then out of nowhere I look down and realized I had been hammering the climb of the free sample course for 4 min and was sweating all over the floor.

Canít imagine once on Zwift and doing stuff. That interactive control is a game changer versus a fluid.

Road feel is sooo much better than a fluid with that nice flywheel.

Hooked in a 5min setup test!
