I got an Elite TUO (Toaster), I will either be using my phone mirrored onto the TV or a laptop

Ah, a wheel-on trainer. One extra tip then: don't make the same mistake I made and use old tubes with sealant in 😉 Unless you like cleaning sticky goo off your new trainer.

Quick question to all you Zwifters with Kickrs, I have recently(today) started using Zwift and I have lots of Trainer disconnections, any suggestions? I am going to try a ANt+ extension tonight.

I run both TR and Zwift off WIN10 laptop - BT was a disaster - went to ANT+ dongle plugged direct into laptop USB port which is about 3m from my trainer and it connects perfectly every time, never had it drop during a session. If you have issues then a simple USB extension lead move the dongle closer to the rear of the trainer should sort it out

Agreed. But, not all ANT + dongles are equal. I think the most reliable one is the Garmin.

In 2019 I got the tacx unit ... if for no other reason than stock at the time

 

It works very well 👍

Yep I agree - I was lucky to get one (Don't even know the make) that does work. I also tried a BT dongle off TakeAlot which was useless. I think a lot of connection errors are dongle related

ANT+ FTW.

Anyone doing the Zwift Classics? I signed up, given the current state of things, my week riding will probably be confined to indoors.

Signed up for the 1pm ride tomorrow. I am not ready for this, but lets just say I have a lot of room in my current training regime for some Z11 work....

I can’t take their website serious with all the spelling mistakes. “Swift” in stead of Zwift? 

I’m not on facebook, and using that website is like going to the dentist.
