I've had both and the smart bike is way ahead. I've just done a 1 hour race on Zwift and the competition was brutal. 300W average with 500+W pulls on the front just to stay in the front group. ...

Where shall I post your medal? Honestly, nobody cares how hardcore you are. Having the need to keep stating it probably means you have insecurity issues.

I prefer to go skiing when it snows. Skiing >> fat biking. When it's wet and muddy I prefer training on Zwift. None of these things are actually mutually exclusive anyway. They all have their...

Of the guys I ride with outdoors, the ones who also have indoor trainers are invariably faster outdoors than those who don't. This is most apparent in spring when some guys have hardly ridden...

If you do a search you will see that there have been several different "speed" bugs reported in Zwift over the years, which have subsequently been fixed. I remember one of them was related to the...

I believe it was a Zwift software bug allowing those super high speeds in some specific scenarios. I donít know the details, but Iíve heard people discuss it before. I presume the bug was fixed long...

What I find in reality is that the vast majority of riders on Zwift actually do ride with realistic, believable power numbers, so it makes virtual racing meaningful and fun. Most riders on Zwift are...

My Direto X reads about 5% lower average power than my 4iiii single-sided crank meter (in line with typical drivetrain losses). Initially I did some constant power comparisons at various power...

If you have a well calibrated power meter, then Zwift is realistic enough. Imagine perfect roads with no headwind, the fastest bike money can buy and countless drafting opportunities. Zwift speed...

Regardless of potentially different physical drivetrain losses across different trainers, there's also the differing methods of power measurement and calibration used. For example I have an Elite...

One thing that puzzles me is how they account for variations in power measurement between different power meters, trainers and smart bikes. Some are measuring power directly at the cranks, others...

Ah I see. I check them on Strava, where they do unfortunately stick around forever. Obviously nothing Strava can do about it. I'm not chasing KOMs myself, so it doesn't really matter as long as I...

Yeah I've noticed a lot of Zwift KOMs are messed up. I believe there was a bug that allowed ridiculous speeds on occasion, but never experienced it personally. Plus you also get the odd nerd...
