  • Does anyone else have trouble with Zwift not automatically updating rides to various linked apps like TR, TP, Strava? This despite all the relevant connections having been established. Is there a simple fix or manual ‘push to (said service)’ button that I’m missing? Ta

  • Have you disconnected and reconnected them?

  • Yes, done that. But it doesn’t seem to go back and retrieve files that haven’t been transferred, so can you manually push rides from Zwift to Strava?

    Edit: I’ll do the .fit file thing. The system seems slightly unstable.

  • Upload the fit files?

  • On my phone it takes an age to upload, I think the servers are probably having a nightmare. I push to Strava fine, but if it's not working you could push to Garmin then pull Strava from there (or something similar). If you can get one zwift sync working then Strava/TP/Garmin servers may be more reliable.

    Edit: sorry, just reread your post - I don't think you can push old files manually.

  • More noob questions...

    I have managed to find and buy a Saris M2 which I should get by the end of next week. Specs says to connect "via integrated dual-band Ant+ FE-C and bluetooth".
    What kind of Ant+ device do I need to connect to a MacBook Air?

    Also, are all riser blocks created equal? Same for trainer tyres - what do I need to look for?

  • What kind of Ant+ device do I need to connect to a MacBook Air?

    ANT+ USB dongle. And an extension cable. They tend to get a bit grumpy if plugged into a computer directly.

    Also, are all riser blocks created equal?

    It's just a block of stuff to lift the front wheel. Anything the right height should do.

    Same for trainer tyres - what do I need to look for?

    I used a blue Schwalbe trainer tyre before switching to a direct drive trainer. No complaints, and I didn't die. But any reasonably durable tyre should be fine.

  • Specs says to connect "via integrated dual-band Ant+ FE-C and bluetooth".

    That should be able to Bluetooth directly to the computer, no dongle required.

  • Good point. No need for an ANT+ dongle.

  • Bluetooth Zwift And Saris have stopped working since the November update. Use Ant+

  • Alright. Got Ant+ dongle, extension cable, riser block and trainer tyre on order. Should be set up before next weekend.
    Magic wand for fitness, right...?

  • Turbo works. Just miserable for the first few times

  • Get one of those sweat protector things for your bike, sweat is very corrosive.

  • Or a towel. My sweat is similar to the blood of the aliens in Alien, in terms of its capacity to cause corrosion, so I use both.
