Good First Impressions
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Purchased this unit from Competitive and was impressed with their service and speed of delivery. Also, received a follow-up call and e-mail to inquire about any additional questions and support. The trainer itself has been used for a couple of rides totaling only 50 miles at this point. I like the road feel and smoothness of how well the unit performs and not to mention its quiet enough to watch TV at a low level if desired. I had to call Wahoo initially since I was trying connect via blue tooth but was informed I needed a ANT+ dongle to use it for Zwift. So plan on making an additional investment for a dongle if you intend on using one of the on-line training sites. Otherwise, it did connect easily to my Garmin 1000 while using the speed and cadence sensors. Through your Garmin the resistance can be manually adjusted or you can run any maps that have been uploaded to your Garmin. Using a saved map will automatically adjust the resistance based on the elevation changes. You just need to make sure the elevation screen is displayed to prepare for required gear changes. The only complaint I have is in regards to the supplied skewer. For my specific bike the thread extends through the nut on the drive side to where it bottoms out in the mating tapered sleeve on the trainer (see pics). This caused the bike to wobble and the wheel eventually came loose. I plan on correcting this by either adding a washer or grinding a couple threads off the skewer.
