VIDEO: How To Setup Your New Direct Drive Bike Trainer

Your new bike trainer is here and you are eager to start using it. However, unlike your old classic trainer, smart trainers offer a little more as far as technology and fun things to do. Getting it set up properly and connected at first, can be a little intimidating and confusing.

In this video, I will walk you through how I set up my trainers to make sure it’s up to date and working properly. I walk you through the unboxing, cassette installation, and tools you need, firmware update, calibration, and pairing it to Zwift.

  • Your videos are great and been so helpful. I’ve tried everywhere to find the answer to this question. Everyone just says they’ve never had this problem…
    I hooked up an older MTB to my tacx and I don’t get near enough resistance. I calibrated it, updated firmware. In the hardest gear pedaling around 120 it says I’m only putting out 240 watts. Everyone says to just use a road bike on smart trainers. Any ideas?
