I'm in.  It's been two days so far.  I'll post a review soon.

Is anyone else in?

I got the invite, but haven't used it yet because I hate the trainer and don't have a USB ANT+ stick thing.


Kinda thought maybe I would have purchased a Kickr by now, but I haven't.

I decided to bail on making a review since I'm just not feeling the inspiration to write the copy, but here's a video from a few weeks ago.  The game has been through a few iterations since then but still looks a lot like this

Im tempted to try and ride the rollers with Zwift...not sure how I will react to the turns.  Hopefully I dont turn off of them.


And that im looking in the garage, I have no good way to set up with it...so no rollers with zwift right now

I will NOT try zwift on rollers.  It was tough enough on tourdegiro.  I've since permanently set up the trainer.

I suppose if I had a tiny screen it might be easier but I am using a projector onto a 100" screen and big stereo speakers

And that is enough reason for me to not even consider trying it then.  Im getting better on the rollers, but im still a little shaky at time.  Im at the point where I can watch TV, and just last weekend I was able to pull my phone out of my jersey pocket and change songs, but actually following something like my guy on Zwift might be a little much.  Ive fallen off the rollers one time and I dont really want to do it again

With TdG I rode the rollers mainly but I had to remind myself to look away at every corner.  Zwift is so immersive, and the quick overtakes that happen with idle riders would cause pretty much anyone to react.
