    Anywhere to try bkool or zwift

    Thanks to some useful feedback on another thread I am considering joining the ranks of virtual / turbo / indoor (I dont know the lingo yet!) riders. However, purchasing a turbo trainer is quite an outlay. Is there any gyms or places in London where you can have a trial session on one of these...

    Bkool Ghost race issue

    Has anyone else come across this issue when doing a Bkool Simulator ride using only ghosts for company?.... so tonight I selected a bunch of ghosts within a narrowish time range (about 26-32 minutes) for a 12.5km route and had all 25 ghosts fly past me like I wasn't there on the first uphill...

    Bkool Power Issues

    I've just picked up a Smart Pro 2 and it's massively over reporting power compared with my PowerTap P1s. The Bkool software worked pretty well taking the power from the pedals then controlling the trainer's resistance but I can't get it to work properly with either Sufferfest or Zwift. ANT+ for...

    Bkool issues - new user

    Hi I wanted to try out Bkool for the first time this evening - but I couldn't even get started. Just for background, I don't have a smart trainer, just a normal one with speed and cadence sensors. The problem is, Bkool will pick up and connect to my speed, cadence and heart rate sensors, but...

    Bkool Smart Go Trainer (White) One Size

    Well I don't understand these things. I've tried and tried (but admittedly not that much) but I just don't get the appeal. So I'm selling my Bkool turbo trainer. I've still got the box and all that stuff. £210 and I'll pay the postage.

    NOW SOLD. Smart Go Trainer inc Thru Axle Adaptor

It’s the BKool Smart Go virtual trainer with Bluetooth connectivity built in (it doesn’t have ant+ but any external one can be used). I’ve used...

    Bkool- Am I looking in the wrong place.

    Hi. Bkool newbie question. Sorry. I'm in the premium free trial period and one of the things that attracked me to it was the idea of using real footage whilst riding. All I can find are the simulated rides. Have I read it wrong or are they there but I just can't find them?

    Bkool trial period question.

    I thought I'd give it a trial to see if I like it because I like the idea of cycling up proper hills etc but all I get when I fire it up is just a background of misty hills with a timeline along the bottom. Am I doing something wrong? I thought I'd get to use it as intended.

    Bkool Go Trainer - using brakes and killing bearings

    I've searched the forum and can't find anyone else who has posted about this problem. I set up my new Bkool Go and jumped on my bike, just to give it a spin. After a few seconds I got some (virtual) speed up and was having a great old time. Then I was politely reminded by my family that I was...

    Bkool Pro2 trainer on Zwift

    Hi, I have a Pro2 trainer and I'd like to use it on Zwift to compare it with the Bkool simulator. I've seen posts that say that the original Pro had to be set to Ant+FEC on the settings screen and then it will work. Does the Pro2 need the same setting up and will it still work on the Bkool...

    Opinions sought on the Bkool Smart Go please...

    I've been researching the best "budget option" smart trainers with the ability to automatically control resistance as the wife will go loco if I spend £400 on a smart pro 2. The smart go looks like a decent option at £255 (with included ANT+ stick) as I don't anticipate needing over the quoted...
