Does the V4 still receive updates?

@gplama - do you normally use your Wahoo kickr as the power source or prefer to use your power meter? Any tips for getting the best results from ERG mode when using Kickr and your own power meter?

Hello Shane, if you must choose between the Kickr core or the flux s. What should be your advice and why?

Thanks for all your videos. I was wondering if you had a solution for the flywheel going too fast when I'm in high cadence low power. I'm doing some 95-110 cadence runs at 150-250 watts, no matter how smooth my pedal stroke I keep pushing the flywheel too fast and then my drivetrain clunks when it catches up to the speed of the flywheel. Is there a way to smooth out the ERG mode so it's not dropping the resistance too much in these intervals? I haven't had this issue on other trainers.

Excellent video. In your opinion do you still need to perform freehub servicing on the V5? Wahoo doesn't seem to recommend any basic servicing other than to your drivetrain. I'm always keen on maximising power when riding on Fulgaz or Zwift so if it's worth an extra 5-10 watts it's worth doing in my book!Thanks.

Hi Shane, do you have any experience with the wahoo reconditioned kickr v5? Wahoo have them on sale for $1100 and curious if it would be worth buying. Cheers mate.

@Shane Miller - GPLama
I was used to riding on a Kickr 2018 but as of late I'm spending some time on a Tacx Flux S. I'm a very light, small guy (55kg, 166cm) and I like climbing (who'd have thought :D) and I prefer a very low cadence out-of-saddle riding style (55 to 65rpm). Doing Alp du Zwift sessions on the Flux S feels like riding in the flat. Switching to an easier gear will just have me increase cadence to uncomfortably high levels.
Do you have any experience on this? I would like a trainer that gives me a ton of resistance while riding a simulated gradient. Is it possible that only the high-end models such as the full-blown Kickr, ... are capable of providing this "kind of resistance" or am I doing something wrong on the Flux S?
I'd really appreciate an answer and I guess there are other people out there curious about differences in feel when riding a simulated climb :)

Greetings Shane, I really like the comparison between the Kicker and the Core trainer. I did want to ask what in your opinion is the best advantage of doing a direct drive trainer (kicker) vs a wheel on trainer (Snap). The Snap requires you do the spindown each time you ride vs every 2 weeks with the Kickr.

I was thinking about getting a refurbished Kickr but was leaning towards the Snap. I was just wondering what in your thoughts were on the biggest difference was between the two.

KICKR 5 or TACX NEO2T if you were spending your own money?

I dont know where or who to ask this question but you seem to be pretty knowledgeable about bike trainers so here goes.

Could there be a discrepancy in power output between smart trainers and smart bikes? I have a tacx neo gen 1 and my ftp is 240 but i go to my coaches studio once a week and they use wahoo kickr bikes and honestly it's so buttery smooth i can push out bigger watts. So much so that my coach gave me an ftp of 260! And i do the workouts without too much trouble (hard but doable).

The thing is if i had that ftp at home, there is no way i can hold that type of power for longer than 5 minutes. So what gives?

I have a weird issue with the kickr v5. The power reading in erg mode matches allmost exactly my PM but in the simulation mode the power reading becomes too low from ~6-10% compared to the same PM. The kickr is updated to the last FW, both sensors are properly calibrated. I'm just arranging the warranty pickup with Wahoo but I got a somehow scarry mail saying "Please note, all V5 KICKR trainers are calibrated using the same method and use the same hardware. As a result, the replacement trainer will provide the same power accuracy as your current trainer." Anyone with the same problem perhaps?

I just purchased a Kickr v5 and got it set up last night, coming from an Elite Direto that I've been training on for 4 years. A couple of things that have been troubling me that are different then the way the Direto functioned, wondering if I can work that out. I'm pairing with Apple 4k TV via Bluetooth and using Zwift. I did a quick test in ERG mode, first thing is that when I accelerate or spin up faster, the power or speed does not change in Zwift. I know ERG holds you to a certain power, but on the Direto it would show those changes (increase speed and power in Zwift) then average back down to the set power within a few seconds. Maybe this is something that can be changed in the APP? I haven't tried to play with the ERG mode smoothing or speed simulation yet. I'm hoping that will make it more like what I was used too. Second, the effort at a given power in ERG mode seams to be way off. I know the Kickr is suppose to be more accurate then the Direto, but this is like 15% - 20% difference. Example; Doing a Vo2 set of 5min x 5 ERG intervals, usually around 310w, I could barely get through the first one, and during the 2nd I had to drop the power to around 270w, and that felt more like what I was used too on the Direto. My last 20min FTP test on that trainer was 264w (2 weeks ago/ 56yrs old 77kg) which is up from 240w a few months ago. Maybe the Direto just sucked when it came to accuracy, and if that's the case I'll have to re-adjust all my workouts to match the lower power numbers that the Kickr is reporting, kind of sucks from a motivation stand point :-( My power numbers have improved outside on the bike too, but the funny thing is I've always been able to hold more power on the trainer then on the bike, a lot of people report the opposite

it appears the Wahoo app doesn't let you perform the spin down test anymore anyway. When you select the button, the app tells you V5 auto calibrates while you are riding.

Shane, I noticed that you suggested on another thread trying a factory spin down on the v5 as a potential fix to under reporting power at low flywheel speeds. Since the v5 has auto calibration, why would a factory spin down do anything?

My wife would "Kickr" if I spent this much money on a bike trainer. I better get outside and ride for real 😆😆😆
She's a sweetie and probably would buy it for me if I asked. Awesome video as always. Wish I were this smooth on my Teams meetings.

What has actually changed to make the new adapters requried?
