Why is your ant+ dongle that you were using with the Powerbeam (it’s Cycleops, not Powerops fyi) not working with the Kickr...? I had a Powerbeam and I have a Hammer. The Powerbeam suffered a terminal power surge, and insurance bought me a lovely new Kickr 3. I use the same Ant+ dongle that I used with the ‘beam, and it transmits perfectly. The missus uses the Hammer and I use the Kickr. I’ve obviously ridden them back to back and must say I prefer the Kickr to the Hammer. The Kickr is certainly quieter. I recommend you “tune” your derailleur and lube your chain so that it runs smoother and with less noise. Nothing wrong with the SRAM cassette the Wahoo comes with (you need to buy a cassette for the Hammer, and a skewer too, both included with the Kickr, for the same price as a Hammer) Wahoo uses Bluetooth Smart, so if your laptop or desktop doesn’t have Bluetooth Smart, it won’t work. Your problems should definitely be solved with the ant+ dongle. Don’t worry about the other 2 wahoo apps, just use the Wahoo Fitness one. The app is specifically designed to be used with Wahoo’s products, so just use the wahoo spindown as he says. I only use the Rouvy/Cycleops software when I’m calibrating/doing a spindown on the Hammer. I won’t spin the Hammer down on the Kickr software and vice versa. Forget about the Zwift spindown. Use the correct tool for the job if you have it. Wahoo has a normal spindown, and then a factory spindown with a slightly longer method/protocol. The factory one is to be used the 1st time you take it out of the box. Use the normal one once every second week or so. And once a month run a factory one. It’s always a good thing to do if you want to maintain consistent calibration and thus data. I have a friend with a Kickr Snap 2 and she was calibrating it on Rouvy. She couldn’t ride 180 watts without the system almost completely locking up. I ran an advanced spindown on the Wahoo app, and Robert’s your father’s brother, problem solved. The agents (Sean from Ikhambi) for Wahoo are great. I had a small issue of a sensor sticker inside my flywheel lifting and catching on something, making a ticking sound. He offered to immediately warranty the entire unit. I said I had an idea on how to fix the issue without all that hassle, and the agent emailed me and checked up with me that I had sorted it myself as I had insisted on doing, or if I do want to send it back. I had it sorted and he told me that he’s made a note of my problem and should it ever reoccur, he’ll sort it out without question. That said, I’ve bought and owned many Cycleops products (powermeters on 4 bikes) and Dave from BPT is always super helpful whenever any type of issue has arisen.
